Cog Compendium - Fiona Randall

Morning all today I'm sharing a grungy steam punk Wall  Art piece using Andy's Compendium Kit.

I started by applying embossed cardstock to the MDF base from the kit and then applied a base coat of DecoArt Raw Umber Media Fluid Acrylic. Burnished Brass Metallic Lustre was then applied to the base to highlight the embossed design and also swiped along the edges for definition then buffed to a shine. Watered down  Patina Antiquing Cream was then spattered across the base then repeated with Titanium White and Metallic Gold Media Fluid Acrylics.

The cogs and bookplate all had DecoArt Texture sand paste applied and set aside to dry. DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Metallic Gold was applied to the clock face then a coat of DecoArt Antiquing cream in black was applied and wiped back to give an aged and tarnished effect. The same treatment was applied to the two large cogs, small cog, porthole, bookplate and bolts and screw heads. The remaining large cog and three medium cogs were given Andy's rust technique.

All elements were then assembled onto the  base and spattered with watered down Patina Antiquing Cream.
 Finally the word TIME from Andy's Illusionary Artists Word Up and Numbers stamp set was stamped onto card and attached to the back of the bookplate then attached to the base.

This is a great little kit and I haven't used all the elements it contained. So plenty left over for another project.
