Mixed Media SEA themed Daily Art Deco plaque


Hi I’m Gerry from Gerry’s Craft Room and
welcome to my channel In this video I’m going make a hard board
Mixed Media sea themed deco board I’m going to work on the rough side of the
hard board which has a fun texture a great product to work with it’s sturdy
and doesn’t bulge I really like it I start with applying sand texture paste
I spread it around the sides of the board I’m going to fill up the middle so no need
to apply it there by the way I added the products I used in
the description box for you and if you are new here don’t forget to
click the subscribe button for the next layer I’m going to use fine
texture paste with a FabScraps stencil and I will let that dry then I apply a layer of gel medium gloss in
the middle I press and lift the spatula to get some more texture and then I’m going to add different beads
to get some more texture first I sprinkle on some micro beads now I add seed beads in different sizes I’m adding a bunch of sea shells from different trips we did we love going to the sea with
our doggies they all a big fans of the sea and the beach,
can’t find a bigger sand box anywhere the gel medium is a great glue for all sorts
of things you want to add to your project especially when you want to work with sprays and paints I’m adding some more sand paste with a Daily
Art stencil Along the sides I’m adding a strip of fabric,
just simple cotton just some more texture all these layers will
give a great look at the end and I’m gluing it down again with the gel
medium which goes great I sprinkle on some more micro beads on the wet
gel medium and I will let it dry I add some more sand paste along the edges
of the fabric to make it blend a bit more and I’m going to give the piece a coat of
white gesso and then let it dry again when I have products that dry fast like paints
or paste and also this gel medium by the way I tape the foil that comes of the top inside the lid to protect it from drying out I’m adding some more shells and hard board frames at the bottom
to make it a bit more a symmetrical I covered that part with white gesso too
now I’m going to use ink sprays I have yellow and teal and I use that to make a greenish sea colour and let both colours shine through here and
there every now and then I add some water to let
the colours blend and run a bit I keep my piece at and angle to help the colours move Now I’m spreading the colour along the edge
a bit with a brush and some water now I’m going to add some shine with metallic
paint in 3 blue colours I’m brushing it over the top and some of the
creases but I want to keep the colours from the sprays too
so I’m not filling it up completely just keep adding bits of paint until you like
the look now I’m going to dry brush gesso to make
the texture more visible in the middle I add a bit of grey metallic paint and now I apply some silver metallic gilding
polish to make the shells stand out a bit more and as a finishing touch I add a metal embellishment
with the word journey If you like the video give it a thumbs up
