Hello all, this is Phoebe here with you today.
I am very happy to share this project with you guys as it is one of my best and favorite projects of 2017, it’s also the DT application I made especially for Lindy’s, a Mixed Media Altered Glove for Lindy’s Gang.
I always love altering 3D items instead of just flat surfaces. So this time, I chose a pair of simple gloves and turned them into something really steampunk looking and a bit spooky-ish!
Since the glove is a soft surface that should be able to bend and move (I actually did wear it after finished, please see the last few seconds in the video), I used layers of thin chipboard to do all the decorations. After prepared the surface with black gesso, I used copper and purple shades of Lindy’s sprays to add color.
Then I used Lindy’s embossing powder on different areas of the glove. I even mixed two types of embossing powder for a more eye-catching effect!
I also used a trick I discovered, mixing varnish and Magicals/Magical shaker to create Mars-looking effect. I recommend watching my video tutorial to see how wonderfully versatile Magicals really are.
- Embossing Powder – Gilded Burgundy Brass/Midnight Violet
- Spray – Incandescent Copper, Cowabunga Copper, Black Orchid Silver, Violaceous Violet, French Lilac Violet and Voodoo Violet Blue, (retired color)
- Magical – Sidewalk chalk/Cattail copper brown
- Magical Shaker –Polka purple
Thank you very much for watching! I hope you like it
