Hi everyone! This week for my DT project I’ve worked with this MDF Reindeer/Deer Decoration that was in my kit.
I wanted to make it into a really wintery and snowy looking project, rather than just Christmassy, so I’ve used lots of white, blue, silver, and sparkly/pearlescent elements.
I covered the whole piece in heavy gesso to start, then added my stencilling with Prima Paper Paste. Once that was dry I added mint and turquoise pearlescent and metallic paints – the turquoise paint is by Fabrika Decoru.
I used Fabrika Decoru Metallic Silver paint around the edges and to add silver accents later on top of the embellishments. Around the edges of embellishment clusters and around the antlers I also added Glass Bead Paste, adding extra Glass Beads by Prima, to look like clusters of fallen snow.
The flowers are from my kit, and are available in flower bundles from the store. Other embellishments are from my stash, though I’m fairly sure most of them came from previous kits!
To see the full process, you can watch my YouTube video here. I’m also going to be selling this, and other mixed media items, in my Etsy store, with 100% of proceeds going to Shona’s fund, which you can read about here.
