A few years ago I bought a wooden candle holder blank and decided it was time to do something with it. I must admit it's not the colour that I started out to do, it was going to be a peachy colour but ended up being mauve.
First I gave the candle holder a coat of gesso.
I adhered some die cuts and lace that had wooden beads attached.
I added some flowers and metal butterflies and gave them a coat of gesso.
The next steps I haven't got any photos for but I painted the holder with green paint and added a crackle glaze, then I painted it with a cream coloured paint. You can see some of the crackles in the photo.
I then used my finger to spread some pewter gilding wax. The photos below show different areas of the finished candle holder.
I used the following sprays and paints.
Fresco Finish - Granny Smith, Vanilla, wisteria.
Fresco Crackle Glaze.
Tattered Angels Mica Spray.
The rest of my Altered Eclectics team mates have made some wonderful inspirational pieces, so why not take a look.
Thank you for looking.
