"Written In Stone"
SinCity Design Team Call Project
As an artist I so much enjoy creating something different, unique and out of the box! In this project my goal was to deliver a positive message through stamping while also creating a texture that would enhance the text.
This finished project can be incorporated into mixed media artwork to make a unique and positive statement!
I used Paperclay as the medium and a message stamp to create the image. Using metallic paints and Perfect Pearl Mist. I then created a faux look of stone. I darkened in the letters with a shiny ink product called "Smooch" and finished with a spray matte sealer.
PaperClay "modeling" clay
Assorted Stamps with sayings or quotes
Assorted metallic acrylics ( I used Stewart Gill ~Meta Mica~) in turquoise,black, dark brown
Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in "Perfect Copper"
1) Mold the Paperclay into a thin shape that you would like to work with and imprint the saying or quote onto it.
2) Let dry several days to make sure it is completely dried.
3) Begin layering colors by starting with the turquoise then brown and ending with a small amount of black focusing on the impression and cracks in the Paperclay.
Highlight with Perfect Pearls and Let dry.
4) Highlight the letters by painting the "Smooch" ink into the letters. Let dry
5) Seal with matte sealer.
I also enjoyed creating other things such as this little bird out of the Paperclay using the same stamping technique and creating a "Vintage look".
This is such a fun, creative way to use stamps !
