Thank you to everyone for your comments on my last post. I was overwhelmed by your kind words and generosity.
Today I would like to share a project I made just for the fun of it.
This post is heavy on photos but less on words.
The finished size of this is 50cm x 40 cm.
I painted the MDF backing board (50cm x 40 cm) in 3 coats of brown craft paint and using a stencil and tile grout I made the relief pattern around the edge.
I cut the small pieces out of hard board (40cm x 30cm). Please see cutting guide below. All of the stamped pieces have been decorated and made in the same way.
I base coated each piece in craft paint (colors as seen) and smudge some paint here and there to give them a distressed look. The texture on the piece with the man on (shown above) was made with tile grout.
I stamped onto the little pieces using Archival Ink. The coloring is a mixture of paint and felt tip pens. The ink on the images has been fixed using a spray fixative.
Each piece has been attached to the backing board using strong PVA glue. and the whole project was finished with two coats of Gel Medium and some little brass corner pieces (CI).
Distressed roof tiles
Tip: Number the pieces with pencil or chalk before cutting them out. It does save a lot of time.
That’s all from me today.
Thank you for looking.
