A steampunk-style mill by Marietta Tegi

Hello Everyone!

Here again on the blog. 😊 This time I made a steampunk-style mill, that functions as a wind chime.

I painted the natural plywood base with White Gesso and then applied Crackle paste.

I glued corrugated cardboard on the top. I also put Crackle paste on it and I used a glue gun to put 'deposits' on it. I then coated it with Rusty Red metallique acrylic paint. I splattered it with Ink Black liquid acrylic. Finally, I highlighted it with White Gold wax.

I used metallique Hazelnut acrylic paint on the walls, sprayed with water, so the crackling is more visible and doesn't look gloomy.  A little matt effect was missing for my eyes, so I used Burlap Impasto paint in a few places. I put Soot Antiquing wax on the edges.

I painted the mill shovel with Burlap Impasto and minimal Soot and Sepia wax.

I used Ink Black liquid acrylic on the mould elements and then added waxes Old Silver, White Gold and Soot.

Finally, I added a few grainy decorative elements.

Have a nice day!
