These two little hangers (I know.. you can’t see the hooks that would make them hangers:)) were decorated using Chinese scripture stamp and a brass stencil with a dragon motif for the 3d ornament. Modelling paste was mixed with acrylic gold and here’s a quick reminder of 3d ornament making process.
The title mixed media decoupage should really be used for most of the entries here. The old fashioned decoupaged was all about gluing pieces of fabric or paper onto a surface of a decorated object. The whole piece was then coated with protective sealant. Today, it is very often a case of mixing various techniques such as stamping, modelling with gels and stencils, crackling with one or two step crackle mediums …. and more. Glue and a piece of paper is only a beginning, usually followed different methods, getting inspired (and taught!) by others. For me, the fun with decoupage is that the saying ‘sky is the limit’ is so very true.
To decorate the candle holders I used napkin tissue (birds), transfers of letters, scripture and ornamental stamps, 3d floral ornaments, cut outs from a print out (roses), gem stones and a silver relief paint. A couple of coats of glossy acrylic varnish finished the job.
