Deep Sea King by Anna Korszewska

Hi to all mixed media friends!

I decided to design a collection of candlesticks with skulls. This is the second project in this series.

The first is called the 'Queen of the Night'.

Today I present to you the 'Deep Sea King'.

The entire composition is on a large plywood panel 50x20cm.

First, I picked a very beautiful ornamental silicone mold by Prima Marketing Inc, and made some castings using some very light air hardening clay.  I let the clay dry.

I used various accessories

- a plastic skull,

- an old metal candlestick as a crown

- a rubber tire from a toy car as a ruff.

I arranged the composition and glued the molds and the skull.  I made the relief using Modeling Paste and a Finnabair stencil - Read My Letter.

Everything is  covered with Black Gesso.

I created a magical background with Art Alchemy Liquid Colors: Emerald, Deep Turquoise und Umber.

Then, I chose the waxes:  matte Patina Green, metallic Mint Sparkle, Firebird, Old Silver to touch up the texture and bringing forward the whole beauty.

I hope you like it.

Hugs, Ania.

October 2020 challenge

 Hello friends,

We are here today to inspire you with a new moodboard. Autumn is a great time for spending time at home and for making some plans for Christmas gifts and festive home decors, It is also great time to harvest plants and turn some natural objects into great embellishments. We know you are extremely creative and we can't wait to see your projects!!

Our fabulous design team created projects inspired by our moodboard:

Hello, everybody. Our new challenge is full of interesting things and ideas. When I was thinking about what I was going to create, I couldn't limit myself within and about only one thing. I've chosen the clear bottle, dried flowers, some text and a palette from the moodboard. 

I also used Gesso clear to glue the Tissue Paper to the base. Some color was added by Liquid Acrylic. All you need is to combine all the selected elements and place them on your canvas.

Hi everybody!
Our inspiration board is great! I'm crazy about this palette! I present to you a card to inspire you! The card is made as a door, with beautiful cracks and nice shades.

Hello everyone!
Our beautiful moodboard inspired me to design a mixed-media canvas.
To create the background I used Modeling Paste and Finnabair Stencil - Gothic.

I cut out the leaves from the Bristol paper. 

I created the texture with mica in flake form and  micro beads.

Of course, I also used metallic wax Firebird, to be honest, it is one of my favorite!

In this work, I used acrylic paints, Modeling Paste,  Heavy Body Gel, Gesso White, Micro Beads, Mika Flakes, metallic wax Firebird, stencil and various decorations.
