Mrs Steep has color added to her pot .I used Prima Marektings texture powder and added it to linen color folkart paint . I layered over the iron rust paint. Hopeful with time the rust will bleed through in random spots. I mixed pastel folk art paints with each other and in with the hand made texture paint and dry brushed color on in layers. The texture added a lot ot "tooth "so dry brushing in layers was easy and fast.

Her name is MRS. STEEP . Next comes the colors . I started with an iron rusting paint base so when I lay the pastel paints over it in layers the pastels will not look so " candy" like. Also the rich warm brown will make the colors pop when it peeks through here and there. It will bleed through my next pastel layer of ivory much like tea would stain an ivory linen napkin or tea towel.

This is an example of some of my more advanced work using my shrinkets mold for makign shrink plastic beads. In this project I used simple soldering techniques to make a base pendant and then added the one of a kind shrink plastic forms to emblish the pendant using cold onncetions to do so. I then made a one of a kind chain creating random bead wraps and connecting them with left over chain snippets,. You can buy the shrinket molds and my specialty shrink plastic ( I used the opulent shrink plastc the lace like cameo ) on my on web site juliehaymaker.com .
