Reposting victorian tray !! Step by step to make this tray .
This took me lot of time to complete as every time i came up with some idea didnt felt right !
As always frist coat was white acrylic !! I thought any pastel shade would look good with these beautiful roses so ,
2nd layer was Americana decor chalky finish inocencia ( light pink shade ) ,while arranging abv. flowers n theme felt something was wrong .Didnt like base colour. I generally use sponges to layer base to give smooth look ,with brushes i feel lines are seen . 3rd layer is Avocado green by Americana decoart acrylic paint .
Corners are decoupaged with beautiful print outs of Roses . Just cut roses , apply modpodge on print so ink does not spread let it dry for 30 mins to 1hr.
Turn the printout and with damp tissue or damp soft cloth remove layer of paper .
sentcils of butterfly and quote of "Refresh Your Spirit With A Cup Of Tea And A Friend " again for senticls I use sponge n dabbing techinquie not brushes as sometimes with brushes colour spreads dont use water or medium , direct colour .
To merge roses use pentart wax paste metallic Yellow with tip of fingure spread wax on edges of any print outs and around stencils , to get complete look and on sides of tray also I used wax here n there did not cover it completely with wax , so base colour is also visible .
There goes this beautiful tray !!
