Good Morning, welcome back to another day of Introductions...
Today it's the turn of MDF Portrait Media Blanks Kits, the same format as the previously released kits but with new hairstyles that coordinate with their mixed media templates counterparts.
Blunt Bangs Long
Long Loose Wave
They coordinate with the doll face mini, female face mini and the Sugar Skull stamp sets, but you are free to draw any face on yours as your creative heart desires. There are instructions and a face template to help with lining up and facial proportions. I have designed them so they can stand freely, be hung on the wall with the pre cut hanging hole, or adhere them to the Ornate frame large for a complete dimensional piece of art. The only addition you will need to add to the kit is adhesive, any good pva will work and of course your art supplies.
- MDF Portrait Media Blanks kits will be available for purchase on Sat 24th September.
- The kits will retail at £7.99 each
- The MDF Portrait Media Blanks kits have approx ten pre-cut pieces, they have been designed to have some adjustment whether you want to give your portrait a longer neck or flip the hair over for a different look. The MDF is 3mm thick with the plinth/stand at 6mm, your complete portrait will stand about 8" tall.
I have also designed and cut a few accessories to go with our theme this month.
Now onto my Sample...
My portrait is inspired by Snow White, with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony, although she has a candle instead of an apple.
I have a little slide show showing my steps to making this one. I used the same method as my piece yesterday with lots of underpainting and layers of paint. Her top I have collaged with book pages and aged with some acrylic paints. I've adorned the collar with black pen doodles and I love how the candle and roses came out.
I spent a little time painting the back of her hair, if you ever visit and she's looking this way it's just so the back of her gets some appreciation too, not that she's in the naughty corner.
Now you will have to visit our very special guest designer this month...
has created an amazing piece, wait and see...
Thank you very much for stopping by,
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
