Isn't this guy fun? Eh, a little unnerving also. *wink*
I made the tin with most of the same steps as this 'Creepy' one. You might remember I struggled a little using a new-to-me medium on the frame itself, so I tried something different with today's project.
Instead of painting the Ranger crazing medium, I cut off the used tip of a foam brush (that had dried too much to wash and reuse). I dipped it in the medium and used it as a stipple brush on the gesso-painted frame.
It worked perfectly, creating texture and a slight sheen. No additional steps needed! You can see the direction of the sponge (I held it perpendicular to the frame) so I will vary how I stipple next time. The frame handled the thick wet medium like a champ.
Here is the Skelly Tin series so far.
