Using the back off an A4 note pad I spliced the top off to make a squareish piece and then made the smaller piece into a tag. Put some grunge paste through a couple of different stencils and then added masking tape.
Once dry I painted them with black gesso and then went over them again with white gesso using the dry brushing technique to draw out the textures. Next I randomly added some DecoArt textured sand paste.
Once that was completely dry, I painted over the sand pasted areas with paynes grey.
Unfortunately I can't go any further with this as I need the transparent yellow iron oxide to create my rust effect, but I just thought I'd share what I've been up to!!!
