Check out the creepy sunset last night…….I think some of it was smoke from the LA fires. There were two layers of clouds.
This tutorial was featured on U-Create last week. I had the hardest time narrowing down what type of tutorial I wanted to put together for my “guest appearance” but I had recently gauged interest on my blog by posting a painting I had done using the same process as I outline below and thought this would be the perfect opportunity!
Step 12: I spread another layer of brown glaze making sure to work it into the cracks and then wiped off the excess. You may want to do this several times until you achieve the “aging” effect you like.
Every once in a while something I make is a “homerun” with my daughter (although it is very rare occurrence). It will be a sad day when Sienna outgrows the recycled t-shirt skirt and matching top I made a few months ago. We only have about 1 1/2 seasons here in the desert, so it could be a year-round outfit if she would stop growing.
Here is the color palette I used. I also used some white gesso and a small crackle finish kit.
