I'm using a combination of metallic paints and foils to further embellish these shades. I know I showed you how these foils work at least once, but I thought I'd give another quick overview. Here, I have already applied the sizing and it is ready to go. I've placed my sheet of foil over my designed and burnished with a stiff brush, so the green foil comes off the sheet,transferring to my canvas shade.
Here is what is left on my shade...
...and here is what the foils sheet now looks like.
I'm using a little of this "Extreme Glitter" from Plaid.
I applied it over a stenciled scroll with a liner brush. It goes on white...
...but dries clear, just adding a little more sparkle.
The cast of paint characters I used for these shades.
With the painting piece is done, I will glue on some Swarovski crystals and attempt to adhere these pieces to the shades.
