Antique Kada

Hey everyone... Good day to you all.

I'm at the Craft Shop Blog today with a one stroke painting tutorial on Jewellery.

The following are the materials that I have used

Plaid Folkart Antiquing Medium
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Titanium White
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Daffodil Yellow
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Cardinal Red
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Classic Green
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Lime Green
Plaid Folkart Multisurface Paint Aqua
Plaid Folkart One Stroke Brushes
Plaid Folkart One Stroke Carousel
Wodden Bangle and Earrings

Now a little information about the antiquing medium... It is a water based medium which gives an aged look on any porous surface in an instant. Hence it works perfectly well on any wooden surface. May not work well with MDF though😉, as it is not a porous surface. Earlier I had to use a lot of paint and time to get the aged effect on wood. Not any more. The Antiquing Medium does the trick. Also the wooden surface does not require any gesso, since the antiquing medium fills the pores on the surface and makes the surface workable for acrylics. In this post I've used antiquing medium on bangle to bring out that perfectly aged look.

Moving on to the procedure:

Take the wooden bangle and sand it with sand paper if the surface is not smooth. Apply a thick layer of the antiquing medium on the bangle.

When semidry, take a cloth and wipe off the excess medium from the bangle. Tada... I absolutely love the natural look on the bangle now.

Next, paint the calla lily using the flat brush number 10 loaded with titanium white and cardinal red . It is a very simple flower which can be done in just 3 steps. In the pic, you can see the 3 steps for the flower.

With aqua and titanium white, paint the filler flowers using flat brush number 8.

Add the long leaves with lime green and daffodil yellow with brush number 6. The calyx was done with classic green and the highlight  was given with white. Add in more fillers using the small scruffy brush.



For the earrings, I incorporated a few elements from the bangle and created the design.

When the bangle and earrings are dry completely, apply a coat of varnish so it looks permanent and shiny. 

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Kindly try it out and let me know. I would love to see your works.  Please don't forget to subscribe to my blog for more such posts.
