Over at 13 Arts they have this lovely moodboard challenge for February
Used the following chipboard and
stencil available on my etsy store
pillars chipboard white, let it dry then sand it slightly, ink with oxide peacock and ground espresso inks. Now it looks old and patina. I am still debating covering with glossy accents so it looks more like metal.
latin stencil and modeling paste to create the background, paint in with raw umber acrylic paint. I water it down to blur edges, and get color variations, very antiquey. I highlighted the latin words with white gold alchemy wax.
See you soon (hopefully not a month and a but will pass again before a post)
