Good day Y’all!
Today, I’m sharing an interesting DIY Altered Picture Frame tutorial in few easy steps.
Step 1: I’m altering a wooden picture frame and I’ve assembled a few knick knacks to go on this mixed media project.
Step 2: Compose the elements on the frame and adhere them using a strong glue.
Step 3: Paint a coat of black gesso all over the frame to make it jet black and let dry.
Step 4: Spray gold alcohol splash in colour of your choice and let dry. I have used ‘black soot’.
Step 5: This step is all about playing with colours. My goal is to achieve a vintage distressed appearance and I’ve used various shades of tinted metallic paints to highlight elements.
After some experimentation with metallic paints – this is the final result!
The last step is to apply a coat of varnish to the project.
Here is a box crafted the same way as the steps mentioned above.
