Precious Collections


Embossed a tag using a TH script texture fade. Painted with DecoArt media medium grey value 3, dried and given a coat of carbon antiquing cream, wiped back, a coat of ultra matte medium varnish, a coat of white antiquing cream, wiped back and another coat of the matte medium to seal. And finally a coat of quin gold.


Painted the idea-ology plaque with DecoArt everlasting chalky paint and wiped back.


DecoArts orange flicker metallic lustre was lightly rubbed over the top to give a rustic shimmer.


Zip teeth were coated in a mix of textured sand paste and ultra matte medium varnish, a coat of paynes grey media paint and finally touched up with quin gold. 


I outlined the zipper with a white posca pen and used white gelato to high-light the texture in the open zip part of the tag. And it still needed some more, so I edge the tag with more white everlasting chalky paint, think it's finished now!

All the paints and mediums are from the fab DecoArt range, check them out here.
