Vintage lantern


 Hello creative friends, DT member Jyotirmoy Barman here today with a vintage lantern using Little Birdie archival multi-surface paints and metal lantern. The multi-surface paints are suitable for indoor and outdoor usage and can be used on various surfaces including paper, clay, glass, metal, plastic, terracotta, ceramic etc. Now let’s see how I created my project.


Step -1

I took a white washed Alterable photo frame and a metal lantern.

Step- 2

Then I applied Littlebirdie Multisurface paint Tangy Tomato on the outside of the frame and then applied Icy Aqua and Sea Wave  on the inner portion of the frame.

Step – 3

Then I gave  texture using stencil and littlebirdie tinted metallic paint Golden Glaze.Then I fixed a hook to hang the lantern and decorated the area with semi circle shaped chip board and some metal hooks.Then I stick chipboard on the frame and color it with Golden Glaze after applying black gesso.

Step – 5

Then I separated the glasses of the lantern and applied Littlebirdie Apricot Butter abd sanded it with a sanding paper to get distress look.

Step- 6

Then I gave texture on glasses using littlebirdie mixedmedia paste and stencil.Here I mixed littlebirdie Multisurface paint Icy Aqua with mixedmedia paste.After drying I fixed the glasses.


   After that I applied Littlebirdie crackle paste with cotton thread.After drying I stick few natural clay beads with littlebirdie heavy gel medium.Then applied Littlebirdie black gesso on that part where I applied crackle paste.Next I highlighted that portion with littlebirdie tinted metallic paint Golden Glaze and decorated with littlebirdie handmade flowers.

My Vintage lantern is ready now to light and hang.

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