Altered Art and Lindy’s Squirts with Cindy

Hi Gang! It’s Cindy here and I’m back with a new video for you all! I’ve altered a wooden tray using the new Lindy’s Gang Squirts and some gorgeous embossing powder. I wanted to create something with colors that I haven’t used that much before and ended up using a pretty vintage color scheme.

I’ve filmed the whole process and created a video for you guys, enjoy!

Basic Process

  1. First I’ve painted on a layer of black gesso and added white gesso with a dry brush to create a worn effect
  2. I’ve added some texture using Crackle Paste
  3. Then I painted on several acrylics and diluted these with water and added Lindy’s Squirts, Canadian Bacon Blush and Maple Syrup Bronze, I’ve dried between layers using a heat tool
  4. Then I wrapped some sisal rope around the tray and secured with a knot on the back (fun fact, you can use that to hang the tray on the wall)
  5. I’ve used some chipboard pieces which I altered using Versamark and Lindy’s Caesars Gold embossing powder
  6. Then I glued all the elements on adding a layer of sisal fiber in between (I LOVE sisal fiber, have you ever tried painting it with Lindy’s?? It’s gorgeous!)
  7. Adding Expanding Mousse and some Metallique wax to create a bit more interesting details
  8. And I’ve created some pearls using Nuvo Drops
