lovelies! It’s Natassa from Art Recipes and More and today I’m back with a new
project for Andy’s blog.
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
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.
created a variety of textures on all sides of the box, with Modeling and Sand Paste
and a couple of Andy’s stencils.
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.
the box, by combining Chalky Finish in a green color and Traditions Quinacridone
Gold and Raw Umber.
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”.
continued by dry brushing several layers of greens, yellows and purples in
was happy with the colors, I glued all the decorative elements.
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.
will find a full list of materials I used for this project.
hope you enjoy this one!
