Thank you for stopping by, Mark here with my first make for the new Andy Skinner DT and wow what an honour to be part of this amazing team, Thank you Andy for inviting me along.
For my first make I have decided to go down the up cycling route and heavily distress a wine crate that was given to me a little while back.
This is how the crate started life,
I started with layers of Decoart Chalky Finish paint sanding back between layers to get a nice naturally distressed finish, added some extra detail with some of Andy's Decoart Stencils as well as stencils from the Chalky Finish Line.
To start with the aged and grungy process I used the dark cream wax's wiping off the excess wax almost straight away to leave a dark stained finish.
Additional distressing was added using Decoart Media Fluids, Quinacridrone Gold and Carbon Black added as colour washes.
The whole crate was given a coat of Decoart Decor Satin Varnish and the handles were added to finish off.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look, keep popping back as we share more creations from the new Design Team.

Wow, such an awesome blog you have written there and you and I get exactly what information I am looking for, in the third paragraph you put amazing effort to explain the theme of the content. As a content writer, I can understand efforts because when students ask me for APSA Citation Generator, I do the same.ReplyDelete
