MY FIRST DT PROJECT FOR MOLOSSI!
MOLOSSI NEWS!! I opened my Molossi DT package and wondered at all the goodies Josh and Suzanne sent! I decided to alter the letters M, I , A, each one differently to show different techniques you can achieve with some Helmars Crackle Medium in 2 steps, paint, mists and stamps! I will have some more goodies to share next month from Molossi! For the Letter "M" I painted it black with one coat of black acrylic paint, then when dry I applied the first coat of Helmars crackle Step 1, allowed to dry overnight, then applied the second coat of Helmars crackle Step 2. When this was dry, the effect was like black leather which looked amazing! Then I randomly dabbed some Atelier impasto gel onto the letter, allowed that to dry and then started randomly dabbing paint, sprays all over! I was so happy with the result, this would be a great technique (with the black paint) for a boy's bedroom! For the Letter "I" I applied the first coat of Helmars crackle step 1 directly onto the wood, allowed to dry, then applied a coat of Aqua acrylic paint, when that was dry I aplied the Helmars crackle step 2 over the top and left to dry. I then randomly sprayed some mist, and dabbed some dark blue acrylic paint randomly over the letter! For the Letter "A", I decided to go for a completely different technique with these fabulous products from Molossi. I applied a very light coat of white acrylic paint onto the Letter A, when it was half dry I took a baby wipe and wiped away quite a lot of the paint. I allowed that to dry, then used Dylusions Lemon Zest and Mr Hueys mint green mist and lightly misted over the top. While the mist was still wet, I took a Kaisercraft small flourish stamp and used Archival Brilliance ink pad in Coffee Bean and stamped randomly over the letter. I finished with some black acrylic paint on the edges of the letter. I used a luggage tag and sprayed some Dylusions mist and randomly stamped with the same Kaisercraft stamp onto the gift card. I attached the card to the Letter I with some twine! I would love to hear what you think about my first Molossi DT creations!
