I have found that the pieces I have enjoyed painting the most, and was the most pleased with the finish, were those that I combined several products and techniques. I love love to paint with acrylics, but I have found that adding a type of translucent paint with my acrylics makes my piece stand out. As well as adding even a small section with a specialty product like Crackle or a specialty technique like marbling makes a big impact on the outcome. This fall angel has wet brushing, antiquing, intense translucence and marbling as well as a little band of fired gold.
I have added several new How to Technique Packets to my online store as well as a few new Project packets for halloween. The "how to" packets teach the techniques. The project packets contain instructions to complete specific pieces. Several of this project packets combine multiple techniques.
I just loaded the step by step technique sheet on my Techniques page. You can download this for free! Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions! Shelley
