Long story short, I never quite got around to learn how to do it. I had 1-2 not very successful experiments but that was before I learned about the magic of ..lo and behold...Mod Podge! Yep, that's right, this miracle liquid made all my dreams come true.
Ever since I started work I wanted to make a painting for my office and finally this past weekend I did finish the piece.
This is the before ( stage 2 actually), covered in gesso.
I love all the details that I was able to include, like the fabric flowers, the tiny stones, the net, the wooden squares, the rope...it all just came together.
And this is the final version, colored with acrylics, some golden spray, some glitter, and then more Mod Podge.
And a close up:
For a first time, I think it came out much better than expected. I am actually looking forward to the next one.
