Altered mix media basket !!!

April 06, 2019
Hello crafty folks,

                              How are you doing? I am back again at TECS with my other project. The MDF products are so amazing from TECS that we don't have to do so much on it as finishing and quality is so good.

                             This time I altered a TRELLIS Basket from TECS. I have used beautiful MDF cutouts from the store. Oval Frame pair and Gear set. These cut out are amazing with fine details.

                            Now let's start the procedure to make it...

                            First I gave a coat of Black gesso to the entire basket. 

                            Then I roughly placed my MDF cutout for their position. I have put a peacock as my focal point but later I changed that.

                             I added some flowers and rhinestones too. After finalised positions, I stuck all the elements on the basket with heavy gel and again gave a coat of black gesso on it.

                             Now the next step is to colour them. I used metallic paints to colour all the elements. Used red and orange shades. Didn't colour them much as I want the black shadow effect on it. Just highlights with colours. At the end used waxes for more shine and mini stones to create more interest.

                            Hope you like it.
