Magical Plaque by LOUISE CROSBIE

Magical Plaque by LOUISE CROSBIE

Today I’m sharing this large round 12 inch plaque with you. The plaque is made of laser cut wood but you can do something similar on an old scratched LP record. Just be careful how you use the heat gun on an LP. It will warp and melt so just do short bursts from a bit of a distance so it doesn’t get too hot. 
I started by covering my plaque in some 49 and Market paper which I then sealed with a couple of coats of clear gesso. 
I added some washi tape and used clear 3D gel through a stencil over it in a few places.
From then on it was just about building up my composition using resin cast in moulds, artificial flowers (and some real dried foliage), and some clear melange pebbles. 
Once everything was glued on and dry I gave it all a coat of clear gesso. I glued the photo of the girl onto card but laid it aside till all the painting and inking was finished. She was added at the end along with the sentiment.
To colour the project, I’ve used mica powders, liquid acrylics and a distress ink spray.  I also went around the edges with a distress oxide ink. 
The little bolts have been given a slight touch up with rust paste and the melange pebbles were painted with white Pearl metallique paint to make them look like pearls. 
A few touches of sparkly, mica filled, effect paste and a dusting of glitter just made it a bit more magical.
Thank you for visiting the blog.
