Sacred Secrets with patina effect by Monika Maksym

It's Monika here with my latest project.  This time I've decided to show you the latest kit designed by Andy and made by Tando Creative. This set comes with many elements, you can use them all in one project or separate them like I did. 

I start with painting each element with tinting base which works great as a primer. Then industrial wings were covered with modelling paste to create rough texture and painted black along with cog and bolts. I've also used antiquing cream as it helps to accent the lovely texture. Then I've rubbed on a little bit of metallic lustre wax. The frame was painted with crackle paint and sliglthy aged with antiquing cream and a black paint. 

On the main piece that was painted in black first I've used weathered wood medium and grey paint on top. To add more character to it I've added a washes of media acrylic fluids, streaks and splatters of paint. Then a word was stamped on it. Little heart was painted with turquoise paint, liquid glass and some micro beads were added on then I've rubbed some metallic lustre wax on the little frame and top crown.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like it
