Top Hat

TopHat

Playing with modeling paste. I’m using a 5.5’ gesso board for this assemblage. I’m going a bit Steampunk here. I bought some gear stencils a while back and just drug them out this week. I started this by topping the board with vintage text pages circa 1946. Then I added some green paint along with some metallic copper. Next I used modeling paste to layer the gear pattern on with. Now I’m going to go back in and work some magic on the background with more color and shading. I’ll add some points of interest and then dress up the top hat with bling, ribbons, gears, feathers and/or whatnots.

This is quite different for me so it’s a learning process. I hope you come back and check in to see what I’ve learned. I’m always happy to share my process!

Have a happy Friday peeps!
