First I painted the plaques with Gesso so I had a clean slate to work on.
Then I added Shimmerz Paints to re-colour the sculpture. I used Green Olive Shimmerz.
I added some shading by dry brushing some Espresso Pearlz
Then I painted the flowers using a selection of colours...
The tulips used Sunny Side Up Pearlz in three layers.
For the background of each plaque I used Penny Pincher Vibez, Just spraying it onto the background and then adding another spray, Heavy Metal Shimmeringz. I coated the flowers with a good coat of Helmar fixative, to prevent the paint from running, if any of the spray got on the flowers. I also added a touch here and there of Samrock Pearlz to add a moss like feel to the stoney looking background.
The Rose required Royal Red Shimmerz, Pretty in Pink Pearlz, and Teal Shimmerz for the shading
I also added some sparkilicious Enamels in droplets on the petals to look like water.
And the Hydrangea.
I used Blue into Town Pearlz and December sky Blingz, I dry brushed Teal Shimmerz betweeen layers.
All up I was happy with the way they turned out, and I may even pop them out side under the pergola. I will just give them a coat of spray varnish to protect them and I think they will be fine under cover outside.
So thats my everyday shimmerz play! Just something I thought i might get done today, to make something in my house get a new lease on life.
Have a look around there might be something in your home you can ressurrect!
