Hello creative souls, DT member Hema Bhat here today with an inspirational project for the blog challenge#31 – Anything goes with Multi surface paints.
The newly released archival multi-surface paints are
- Premium water based, acid free, non-toxic, suitable to be applied on various surfaces
- Satin finish with great coverage
- Suitable for indoor and outdoor usage
- Can be used on various surfaces including paper, clay, glass, metal, plastic, terracotta, ceramic etc.
- Self sealing, requires no primer or varnish
Using these amazing paints I have created a beautiful and quick wall decor.
Here’s the step by step tutorial:
I had this old MDF dry fruit tray in my stash which I wanted to upcycle into a wall decor. I started by sanding it until the old paper and glue was gone. Then I used a wet wipe to clean it and let it dry.
I gave 2 coats of gesso as the MDF was old. But you can skip this and use the multi-surface paints directly as they don’t need a primer.
Next, I used a floral stencil on the base of the MDF panel using Little Birdie mixed media paste and a palette knife. I used masking tape around the design I needed to do that before I started to work on it.
I had a 6*6 inch MDF which I wanted to place in the centre of the panel. Using Little Birdie Deco Magic I adhered a design from the filament paper – Unicorn Dreams. I sealed the paper using the same glue. Once it dried, I sanded off the edges and painted the edges with multi-surface paint – Pink Swirl. I adhered it with wood glue after I highlighted the stencil design with Pink Swirl and Dandelion multi-surface paints with the help of a sponge dauber.
I painted the outer side of the panel by mixing Snow Dove, Sea Wave and Lime Punch. I then mixed Lime Punch, Snow Dove, Dandelion and Sea Wave to Mixed Media paste to get a light teal colour and applied it on 4*4 inch stencil – Mountain Peaks with a palette knife. I created a pattern on the edges.
I used Mont Marte clay on Resin Silicone Mould- Spring Garden and made few clay embellishments. I simply loved the result, so thought of adding clay leaves to my project. I painted them with Multi surface paints and highlighted the lines with Little Birdie metallic wax – Antique Gold.
Finally I sealed everything with 2 coats of Little Birdie Deco Varnish Glossy with 6 to 8 hours drying time between each coat.
The project looked incomplete without some beautiful Little Birdie handmade flowers. Hence I adhered them using silicon glue. I have fixed a hook at the back to hang it on the wall. My wall decor is ready.
Thank you for stopping by. See you soon with another project. Till then happy crafting!
