Hi folks, welcome to Metallic Week @ Tando. This week it was all about making things shiny and metallic.
Here is my creation...
I used the nuts and screws from the Tando Ministry of Mixology Andy Skinner Book Kit, grab bag of screws, set of 5 keys, Tando Minis - keys, locks & latches and cogs grab bag.
First, I put the printer tray together then covered the pieces with torn book pages. I went over with a wash of white paint then a wash of DecoArt metallic gold paint.
I added some random patches of gilding flakes to some of the sections in the base of the tray and along the frame edge.
I arranged the smaller Tando pieces on a board and sprayed them with DecoArt Shimmer Sprays. To give them some extra shimmer I mixed some mica powder with water and added it to a spay bottle.
With the bigger Tando pieces, I covered with a thick layer of DecoArt gold metallic paint then heated it with the heat gun until the paint bubbled to create some texture.
In a couple of the tray sections, I sprinkled some elements from the Stampendous Frantage bronze encrusted jewel kit then added a good heap of clear embossing powder to encase the Tando pieces and Stampendous fragments inside the melted powder.
I then arrange the sprayed Tando pieces inside and on the printer tray.
Here are all the Tando products I used...
All of the Tando, DecoArt and Stampendous products I have used are available on the Tando website.
Thanks for popping by,
