The theme of this hop is holidays. So I chose Our lady of Guadalupe since a huge part of my holiday decorating is Mexico folk art! I decided to make a shrine.
The Colorique paints I used were Ruby Slippers, Honey Bee and Pacific Ocean. You can see all the colors here.
I primed the piece with a bit of gesso.
The Colorique paints flow very nicely and can be thinned with water if desired. I chose primary colors for easy blending and mixed some with the gesso as needed.
I started off coloring in the flesh tones and yellow first. Then I set the metal piece aside to dry in between colors while I worked on the shrine.
Next I randomly decorated the inside of the shrine with paint, clip art and washi tape.
I continued painting the metal piece, color by color, letting each hue dry before going onto the next detail.
When I was done, I painted the piece with a thin layer of clear sealant.
