Paperbabe New Release ~ Clockwork Frame

It's the third and final day of the *New* Paperbabe releases
and today it's my turn to share what I have been up to using the *Clockwork Frame*

Using the Hatter and Rabbit template I sketched in the faces directly onto the MDF Board.
I used the gear and tea cup overlaying panel piece (included in the kit) as a guide and reminder to myself to leave enough room for those important details.

The new stripes and gears stencils are a two way system allowing you to mask off 
and layer over the top to add the gear details, the pattern also repeats giving you the 
option to design on a much larger scale... the limits are endless

The new eye masks are the perfect addition to the collection helping to mask around the 
stamped eye stopping any overhang from showing when the pupil and iris are stamped in.

Laying down the base colours using neocolor II I added the finer detail with pencils.

The pocket watch, tea cup and extra gears are all separate elements included 
in the Clockwork Frame Kit. Added sand paste mimics corrosion and 
media fluids create that deep rusty colour.

Pencil and a fine liner adds shade and definition down the stripes and around those gears 
with any unused elements added to the background area to replicate gear fasteners.

With the wall hanging fastenings glued onto the back 
my Clockwork Frame is complete.

Paperbabe *NEW* Releases will be available to purchase on the website from 2nd June
a fabulous addition to compliment the Alice Collection or for larger mixed media pieces.

Thank you for taking time to pop on over and take a look.
Wishing you a marvellous week.

  15. I've been following along on your blog for awhile now, but somehow I didn't get this update. I was really impressed because I am a BIG fan of both steampunk and Alice in Wonderland. Of course, I love how you managed to give everything a rusty patina using media fluids. I think this is out of this world gorgeous, and I wish I had gotten here sooner.
