A Garden Plaque

We have a fabulous new challenge over at Creative Artiste today. The sponsor this month is Lindy's Gang and the lucky winner will receive some Lindy's Stamp Gang products to play with.

For my project I created a garden plaque using Powertex. I began by covering the board with Powertex and then fixing the plaster cast girl and face into position and covering everything again with Powertex. Strips of cotton fabric were soaked in bronze Powertex and then arranged on the board with banana skin to "ground ", the girl. A tab to hang the piece by was also fashioned out of cloth. Once completely covered I added the dragonflies and the project was left to dry. The whole piece was then buffed with pigment mixed with a small amount of water based varnish (almost to the point of being dry brushed). 

Happy Crafting,
