Deco Art Metallic Wax-AMAZING STUFF

I picked up this frame at an Estate sell. It had been in the basement a long time. I left it out to air-but the basement smell would not go away!  My husband suggested spray painting it to seal it.
I said WHAT!  This is a beautiful wood frame-I don't want to ruin it!
I let it air some more.  The smell wasn't going away.
 
So we sprayed it gloss white. I had decided to make put something contemporary looking in it.
 
Then I remembered.....Deco Art Metallic Wax and Antiquing Cream.
I put a coat of carbon black antiquing cream on first.
let it dry.
Take a damp cloth and wipe to reveal the beautiful design of the frame.
Take a dry cloth and rub the Gold Metallic Wax to highlight the raised edges.
 Here's a close up of the amazing finished frame!!!!  Isn't it beautiful?


Look for Deco Art products.  I give the Antiquing Cream and Metallic Wax a big thumbs up!!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
