I am so excited about the post today! We’re having a fantastic blog hop. But first let me show you the project that I’ve created for the Hop:
I watched a similar project a few days ago and then adapted it for my project. What we’re making today is a decorative container. I personally think this would be a great gift for a man or for anyone that likes the steampunk style. I started out with a tin can that I’ve had for years and some steampunk ephenera that I created with some resin and a mold from the Articus studio.
A little bit here and a little bob there. These I glued onto the can using some Krazy Glue cause I wanted the instant stick. I then took some aluminum foil, crumpled it up and flattened it back out again. Note, try not to tear the aluminum and using a heavy weight aluminum foil would be best. I then used mod podge to apply it over the tin can. You can use a stylus to help press it around the objects on the can. Once all that was done and dry I got to have fun playing with my Terri Sproul mixers!!!! I had fun doing some mixing. I used the bronze powders and mixed them with the crystal lacquer and also used the color enhancer. Wow was this ever some sweet stuff! I painted it on the covered tin twice and this is the end result:
Isn’t this just amazing?? I love how this tin turned out, don’t you? Now here is how this blog hop works:
1. Leave me a comment
2. You must be a follower of my blog.
3. After you’ve gone to each blog and left a comment, go to the Sakura Blog and vote for whichever project you liked the best. I HOPE IT’S MINE!! :0)
The winner of the blog hop is going to win three of the Terri Sproul Mixers and some Crystal Lacquer and the design team member who gets the most votes for their project will win the same prize! How cool is that? I love it and wish you all the best of luck! Now hop on over to Gloria’s blog and leave her some love too.
