~ Renaissance Plaque ~ Designed for Happy Daze


I bought some fimo recently and decided to make a small Renaissance inspired project. I used the non bake variety and rolled out to about 1cm thick and then stamped with one of the houses on the  artistic outpost whimsical melange sheet. I used a script stamp in the centre, then left to dry for about 24 hours. It was then painted with studio acrylic paint in blue, zapped with a heat tool and distressed with the studio black paint. I highlighted the lettering with a krylon gold leafing pen. Then brushed on some heirloom gold perfect pearls. The plaque was coated with lisa pavelka magic gloss resin. The image was downloaded from the internet and placed in a chipboard frame which was given the inka gold treatment. Finally adding some gold german scrap, pearls and a filigree charm similar to this one

Beautiful Paula, gorgeous colour and so well put together. The pearls are perfect for a renaissance piece, and I've learnt something - didn't know you could get non-cook Fimo.

Richness and beautiful textures. There is something so authentic about this Paula, maybe it is the colours you used, I don't know but you certainly approached this with the eye of the artist that you are.
