Magical Door Knocker with Kerry

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.

Next, choose your Magicals, I have used Magical Shakers but you can use the original Magicals too!

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.

I have used Time Travel Teal, Autumn Maple Crimson, California Poppy and Magnolia Magenta Gold Magical Shakers to create an amazing rainbow of colors.

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…

Now all I need is to find the door that my Magical Door Knocker will open…. 😉
