Hello lovelies! It’s Natassa from Art Recipes and More and today I’m back with a new project for Andy’s blog.
This time, I chose a creepy theme, inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s “Dial M for murder”. It’s been many years since I saw the movie, but you know how it goes. Once you’ve seen a classic you never forget about it lol
So, let me show you how I turned the packaging of a bottle of whisky into a grunge wall telephone- secret mobile charging box!
As a first step, I created a skeleton hand. I made the armor with craft copper wire and built the bones on it with polymer clay.
Then, I created a variety of textures on all sides of the box, with Modeling and Sand Paste and a couple of Andy’s stencils.
I took the biggest of Andy’s Acrylic Phone Dial sets by Tando Creative and painted it by applying several layers of Media Fluids, Traditions, Interference and Shimmer Mister.
I painted the box, by combining Chalky Finish in a green color and Traditions Quinacridone Gold and Raw Umber.
Next, I applied some Americana Decor Crackle Medium, mostly on the upper part of the box. After it was completely dry, I applied on top of the medium a layer of Chalky Finish “Heritage”.
I continued by dry brushing several layers of greens, yellows and purples in various tones.
When I was happy with the colors, I glued all the decorative elements.
Inside the big box, I placed a smaller box as a base for the mobile to sit when charging. I opened two little holes at the back side of the big box and on the top of the smaller box, for the charging cable to pass through.
Below, you will find a full list of materials I used for this project.
I really hope you enjoy this one!
Big hugs to all
