Sundays with Sandee - Deco Art Magic

All the paints on this are Deco Art Products. A descriptions of colors and types of specialty paints are as follows:

To create the background on this piece I first brayered Americana Bahama Blue, Whispering Turquoise, and White Birch in multi-surface satin onto the surface trying not to over blend.

The hair was created by combining Americana Camel, Marigold and Muted Gold multi-surface satin finish acrylics along with Paper effects Metallic Copper. I really like how the flat and satin work together and the Paper Effects really accents it well..

The same colors were used for the skin tones, adding red chalk for shading and Soft Jade Multi-Surface satin and a light layer of Limelight Glamour Dust for the eyes.

Writing with Paper Effects is so easy and I really like to take advantage of the little tip applicator to get different widths. The applicator tip was used when out lining the letters for a fine accent, and the tip was removed for bringing out the word "believe" for a bolder thickness.

The video of me creating the hand and the fairy is up on the Frosted Designs blog if you would like to see it.
