This is a huge mdf tag which measures approx 14" x 7". I put some white modelling paste through parts of a 12" x 12" stencil.
Once dry, I painted it with tinting base.
Painted it with dark grey and then medium grey media paint and wiped back.
I added some colour using the media paints.
Put a coat of whitewash over the top to mute the bright colours.
I stencilled through the image with white chalky paint and then filled the whole space in.
Once dry, placed the stencil back over the top and stencilled through with black gesso.
I didn't like the way the head went on the right hand side, so I filled some of the white in with grey.
I added some more stencilling and some stamping in the background.
I touched the butterfies up with turquoise and purple metallic lustres.
And a final photo outside in the sun.
