Ethnic Pen Holder


Hello creative friends, DT member Jyotirmoy Barman  on the blog today with another inspirational project. You all know that the ongoing blog challenge #30 is all about ‘Anything goes with Filament Decoupage Papers’. So today I am using the amazing filament decoupage paper design “Ethnic Paisley” to make a beautiful pen holder. So let’s begin the tutorial.

At first, I took a brown paper cylinder and cut it into desired sizes and applied white gesso. Then I applied black gesso on the round wooden decorable.

Next, I decoupaged the filament decoupage paper and stuck it on the round decorable base with Little Birdie heavy gel medium. After that I applied Little Birdie gilding paste on top of the paper cylinder and added gilding flakes to it.

There after I applied Little Birdie stone texture paste on the wooden base and applied gesso after drying. I highlighted the texture by applying gray shade of chalk paint. To get the shade I mixed white and black chalk paint.

Next I made a face sculpture with Little Birdie ‘Shape It’. It is an epoxy based clay. I applied black gesso  when it became hard enough and coloured it using white, Mango Crush and Bubble Gum and light green shade. I used the sponge dabbing technique to colour the face sculpture.

Then I placed the face sculpture on the wooden base and applied Little Birdie heat embossing paste. Finally I sealed the whole project woth Little Birdie decor varnish – matte and put some artificial leaves and natural twigs in one paper cylinder. With this, my  beautiful penholder was ready!

Hope my pictorial is helpful and  will inspire you. Thank you.
