Hello Lindy’s Tribe!
Have you ever wished you could walk through a magic door into a fantasy world where washing dishes and doing laundry are done with the snap of your fingers? Me too, so I thought if I created a ‘Magical’ Door Knocker, all I would need to do it find the right door to knock on…. right? The key…. (pun totally intended) to the ‘Magical’ Door Knocker is, of course, Lindy’s MAGICALS!!!!
To begin, I found an interesting piece of wood in the garden and gave it 3 good coats of gesso and let it dry thoroughly.
Using a small palette, pop a small amount of the magical powder into one of the wells, remember they are potent and you only need a little! On the craft mat, I have a small amount of matt gel medium and water. I use both the water and the gel medium to activate my magicals and apply randomly to the wood in washes, I start with a light hand and build up the color and allow the colors to meet and blend to create a new color.
By allowing the colors to blend you create additional colors, a whole beautiful rainbow.
Once dry, use a little metallic gilding paste to bring out the texture.
Finally, add your Knocker and embellish with microbeads.
So many beautiful color variations from just a few little pots of magical powder…
…magicals really are… well, … Magical!
Now all I need is to find the door that my Magical Door Knocker will open…. ;)
- Gesso, matt gel medium, gilding paste, metal knocker and microbeads.
Thanks for dropping by and have a Magical Day xx
