Door hanger


This is a papier mache door hanger that I have decorated. I painted the background a metallic green.

Whilst the paint was drying I used a Ten Seconds Studio mould to shape some metal (part of an aluminium sheet). I stuck this to the fish using red line tape and applied Terra paste either side of it, stamping into it with a damp PaperArtsy text stamp. Having dried this with a heat tool, I sponged on some layers of both acrylic and metallic paints. Lastly, I coloured the letters with alcohol inks and stuck them on with Glossy Accents.

The techniques and colours you've used work wonderfully together Jackie. Very effective and striking.
