Chilling Haunted Mansion Triptych by Dee Adams


1. Firstly I painted the the arches with Gesso followed by a mix of the Pyrrole Orange and quinacridone gold. I sanded this back and repainted.

2. Next I stamped the images onto the painted surface and allowed to dry.

3. I used vasaline/hair gum to cover the area's that I wanted to show through.

4. Crackle paint was applied over all the arches and once dry a cloth was used to remove the paint & the images below were revealed. 

5. Next I applied Andy skinners dirty wash to seal the crackle paint.

6. I used black embossing paste through the stencils and sprinkled with chunky gold embossing powder and heat set.

7. I then applied the black embossing paste around the edges.

8. Black antiquing cream was then painted over the entire surface and knocked back with a damp cloth.

9. Finally I sanded a couple of area's back and added the embellishments from Graphic 45 and attached the hinges.
