CREATE Stand Upby Barbara

Hello my fellow chipboard lovers!  Today, I have a neat project for you.  I wanted to make this cool Stand Up Sentiment look like a heavy piece of rusted iron.  I mostly used the Andy Skinner rusting technique for this.  What do you think?

Lay out your chipboard pieces to get an idea of your design.

Run paper through Xryon and adhere to front of CREATE chipboard.  Turn over and cut away excess paper.

Adhere paper to reverse side and cut away the excess paper again.  You will notice in the photos that I am not adding paper to the dovetail sections.

Cover the base piece with the script paper.  Cut away excess paper, paying particular attention to the dovetail openings.

Cover the reverse side and cut all excess paper away again.  Use sandpaper to remove and smooth the edges nicely.

Paint Art Deco border piece and both sides of the wings with black chalk paint.  Edge the stand and CREATE with the black chalk paint, also.

Paint both sides of wings with iridescent gold and quinacridone gold acrylic paints.  These are translucent and the iridescent gold paint will reflect off of the black nicely.

Randomly apply sand texture paste over the word piece and let dry.  Begin adding a mixture of Payne's Gray and a white tinting base with a sponge to the word, leaving some of the paper showing through.  Randomly sponge raw sienna over the border piece.

Randomly sponge quinacridone gold over the raw sienna color on the border.  Leave a lot of black showing.  Finish painting both sides of CREATE.  

Begin brushing on quinacridone gold over the Payne's Gray color to achieve a rusted metal look, something along the line of rusted iron.  In the photo below, you can see where I began adding the quin gold color over the gray color.

Darken the paper on the stand with raw umber antiquing cream and use a damp paper towel to rub it on.

Adhere the border piece along the front edge of the stand, as shown.  Coat the base with ultra matte varnish to protect it and preserve the antiquing cream.

I glued the wings to each side on the back and the CREATE sign was glued to the base.
