Hey Peeps! Let me just tell you that I have fallen for the Pentart Metallic Wax Paste. Not only does it add a gorgeous detail to your creations…but it is also super easy to use. For my project today I’m upcycling a plaster frame stand that I sourced at a local discount store in the markdown section.
Life In Color was the perfect pairing for this frame. It’s kinda “arty” so I think the mixed media supplies work so great with it.
This frame has a lovely base with additional raised areas to highlight with the wax. It’s also super heavy so there is no concern that it might tip over.
To round out the arrangement there’s a bit of netting and twine bows. Last but not least metal gears in coordinating silver.
I took out the glass part of the frame so I could add the brick background pattern then adhere the following layers with foam spacers. Bling is always a good for an well placed bit of sparkle. These coordinate really well so the don’t contrast with the background.
So many layers!!!! This definitely has a very dimensional look, and the wax paste does the trick in making them stand out nicely.
Here’s the process of finishing the frame….
I was able to cover it in with only 1 coat of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Graphite. Yay for 1 coat!!!! After allowing to dry I used my finger and a very light touch to add the wax to the raised areas. Easy Peasy. So much beauty for so little work!!!
Okay that’s all for me today. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative.
