for this project i used ……
Dina Wakley acrylic paint- ocean
13 arts fine grit

i also used imagination crafts mix media ink spray light green, some mdf pieces, some real shells from a lovely visit to the beach last year, white gesso and heavy paste.

to start i put a layer of gesso and dried it, then added the heavy paste , when this was dry i started adding my elements using gel medium as my glue, the cheesecloth, mdf pieces, shells and the mitform ships wheel.i gesso’d it all and left it to dry.
i then added some gel medium here and there and sprinkled with the grit.

when this was all dry i coloured using the ink spray and paint, when that was dry i dry brushed with some gesso.
i dry brushed with the firebird wax and added the gold dots.
lastly i added my title that i sponged with white gesso and edged with the firebird wax.
