Hearts and Cherub



Following on from my last post, this is how I've used the other half of the heart.


Chiselled out a resess to house the small cherub.


Covered everything in Powertex StoneArt.


Used brown and yellow bisters to colour.


Next I took a large elongated heart, painted it with rouge chalky finish paint and stencilled with lace. Made a wash to tone it down and then added more stencilling in a mix of lace and gold. Added yellow translucent and quin gold media paint, spritzed to drip down the tag.


Added lots of pigments and treasure gold to the polystyrene heart and wings until I was happy with the colour as when it dried it went really light.


Close up of the dripped quin gold and translucent yellow oxide.


 And as the sun was still out, a photo in the shrubbery in the garden and although it looks a bit pink, it is actually a really nice stone colour!

Another entry for the PaperArtsy challenge of assemblage.
