Paintbrushes
Sponge Wedges
Brayer
Sanding Disc
Paper Palette
Paper Towel

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the wood canvas with sealer, sand lightly, then wipe with dampened cheese cloth. Basecoat the wood canvas with White Wash. Apply Gazing Medium to Creative Palette along with some drops of Ultra Blue Deep, True Blue, and Purple Cow. Do not put too much paint on the Creative Palette otherwise it will over blend. Gently roll the brayer over the paints until the desired effect is achieved. Press the wood canvas onto the Creative Palette and lift up. Press the sides of the wood canvas into the paint, also. Splatter the canvas with thinned Purple Cow. Allow to dry. Apply a coat of matt varnish to the surface.
  2. Apply handwriting stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Purple Cow out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire hand writing stamp. Stamp it to the lower left and upper right of the wood canvas. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. If you don’t like what you have stamped simply wipe it off with a damp paper towel! Since you already have a coat of varnish on the surface, it will clean up easily. Immediately wash the stamps with soap and water. If any has dried use an old tooth brush to clean. The sponges can also be washed and reused.
  3. Place scroll stamp on an acrylic handle. Pour out a puddle of Lamp Black. Load a new sponge in the same manner as stated above. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the scroll stamp. Stamp it in the upper left and lower right corners of the canvas. Thin some of the black paint to an ink consistency and drip over the scrolls.
  4. In the same manner as above, stamp the horse onto the center of the canvas using White Wash paint. Drybrush and float highlights with White Wash to the horse. The hair is created by pulling floats and then lines of White Wash. The eye and nostrils are filled with Lamp Black.
  5. Float transparent shades with Ultra Blue Deep and Lamp Black. In the Same manner float transparent accents with Purple Cow.
  6. Apply one coat of matte varnish over the entire canvas. Allow to dry. Apply a second coat and sprinkle glitter very lightly around the horse.

Instructions:

  1. Apply Text stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen cosmetic sponge and remove as much water as possible. Pour a puddle of Lamp Black out on the palette paper. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire Text stamp. Stamp it to the upper right corner of the wood canvas. Repeat and stamp entire canvas including the sides. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Immediately wash the stamp with soap and water. If any has dried use an old tooth brush to clean. The sponge can also be washed and reused.
  2. Using a palette knife spread gesso randomly around the wood canvas. Allow to dry. Using your hands, pull off small amounts of the Ultra Light clay and press onto the canvas randomly. Smooth it out so that it is never more than 1/4″ deep. If necessary use water to make it move. Using the Text stamp press into the clay turning it with each impression. In the upper right hand corner of the canvas press the large gear with numbers from the Steampunk Gears collection. Select more gears from this collection and impress randomly into clay. Roll out a separate piece of clay to approx 1/4 inch deep. Trace around it with the dress form stamp. Cut out with X-Acto knife excluding the stand. Bake in oven following manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Use a large paint brush to paint the entire wood canvas with washes of Cocoa. Allow to dry and wash with thinned Lamp Black. Wipe extra paint off so the black is mainly the textured areas. Dry brush the raised areas of the clay randomly with Dazzling Metallics in Bronze, Glorious Gold, Purple Pearl, Shimmering Silver, and Worn Penny. The large chip board cog, wood cog, and clay dress form were painted with the metallics. Stamp individual cog stamps randomly with Lamp Black around the canvas on any remaining flat areas. Paint card stock with Glorious Gold and allow to dry. Stamp the dress form using Lamp Black onto card stock. Trace the baked clay dress form around card stock and cut out.
  4. The wings and a variety of items were created with resin paper. Using a variety of cogs, watch parts, and hands from Steampunk Gears collection, butterflies from the Butterflies collection, and the small butterfly from the Jumbo Butterfly Trio, stamp onto plain paper using Lamp Black. Lay paper on garbage bag pulled tight. Mix Ice Resin® according to the manufacturer’s instructions and cover both sides of the paper using a sponge. Allow to harden overnight.
  5. Apply one coat of matte varnish over the entire canvas. Allow to dry. Glue cogs into place. Cut out all of the gears, watches, watch hands, and wings from the resin paper. Glue items into place onto wood canvas. To add the wings and key to the dress form, create a slit into the clay using the X-Acto Knife, then glue into place. Cut out the center of the large gear and glue into it’s impression. Add resin paper watches and hands on top of gears. Mix additional Ice Resin and poor over these items. Allow to harden overnight.
