'A' Layers and Layers

I took a cardboard substraight in the form of a letter A and gave it a coat of media tinting base.

I added modelling paste, crackle paint, crackle paste and texture sand paste mixed with ultra matte varnish very randomly all over the A.

Next I started to apply different colours of media paint starting with paynes grey.

And yellow transparent oxide.

And after lots and lots more layers.

And same for the other side with lots of quin gold.

Next I added metallic lustre.

I used champagne, orange flicker, turquoise and black shimmer.

I was very sparing with the embellishments as I didn't want to cover too much up!
