Proverbs 31:25…Wonder Woman Style
Good Morning Creatives!
Recently I made a project for my sister in law who LOVES Wonder Woman.
I wanted to incorporate her love of Wonder Woman with a scripture from Proverbs.
Here’s what I came up with:
For this project, I used:
DecorArt 1 Step Crackle (my fave because it’s clear!)
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic- Titanium White, Cadmium Red, Cobalt Teal, and Carbon Black
DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream-English Red Oxide
Plaid Wooden Plaque
Photo Transfer Gel (more on this later)
Wonder Woman Logo (printed from the web)
What to do…
I started by finding my logo online and printing it out on my home printer. Photos transfer work best with cheap copies and prints.
I prepped my Plaid wooden plaque with white gesso.
Once my gesso was dry, I used a photo transfer gel to transfer my image to my plaque.
In all honesty, I am not saying what brand I used because it did not work well. It was a adhesive/sealer product that was suppose to act as a photo transfer gel as well (according to a video on YouTube! LOL) I don’t know if I didn’t use a thin enough paper for my image or what, but it was not as easy as the video and I was left with a few “iffy” spots in my image. (you can see them in the next picture.)
If I were to do this again, I would use DecoArt’s Image Transfer Medium. Lesson Learned. 🙂
Ok…back to the project!
Once I did the best I could with my image, I decided to do a non-trantional approach to the Wonder Woman color scheme. Instead of using the traditional royal blue, I used teal.
Once my background teal was added, I added red and white stars using an old star stencil I had and then outlined them in black (as well as my Wonder Woman logo.)
I also added light swipes of my red and white to my plaque with a dry brush.
Now for the super fun part! Cover your entire piece with DecoArt’s 1 Step Crackle. When you are applying it, add come places a little thicker because the crackles with be larger in those areas.
Then…the hard part…leave it alone. LOL!
Crackle finishes work best when left to dry on their own and NOT sped up with a heat gun.
Once it is completely dry, cover your entire piece with your DecoArt Antiquing Cream in English Oxide. Allow it to dry about 75% and then lightly buff it with a dry, soft cloth.
LOOK at how YUMMY the antiquing cream sits in all of the cracks from the crackle gel!
Here are a few more pics:
The antiquing cream covers up some of the “oops” from the photo transfer mishap.
I started with a pencil to get my word spacing right. Once I had it the way I wanted to, I went back over it with a black sharpie.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and it inspires you to use your gifts to bless others.
And…on a completely different note…I can’t do a post about Wonder Woman without sharing this meme because I feel like this all the time…
Have an amazing day!!!
