The crown itself starts with a chipboard piece that hooks together with a brad (you can also glue it, I do both), then you begin painting.
This was my first attempt with Patina Paste and it is ridiculous how easy it is to use to achieve so many beautiful effects.
The first thing I did was to smooth and attach the crown together with glue and the brad. Then I used the Blue paste patina covering the crown back and front. Once dry, I added another layer using the Brass patina paste. While that was drying, I added two strips of Dresden Foil trim around the bottom of the crown and then glued on some jewel embellishments.
Next I took the Alice in Wonderland Chipboard cut outs and painted them with acrylic Metallic paint on the back and the front I just painted the edges.
Once dry, I glued the Alice in Wonderland paper cuts to the matching chipboard pieces. Then I took some of the Brass patina paste and went around the edges of each figure to give it the appearance of brass.
The little figures are so adorable, (insert tip here...you can also get the stands for them so they stand alone). The next step was to decide which ones I wanted to use and where to place them on the crown. I made the choice to glue them from the inside so they didn't cover up any of the crown's design. I like to use the clear adhesive (E6000) for attaching pieces like this, it dries quickly and is strong.
Falling down the rabbit hole while dreaming is not all that bad.. Thank you for visiting today.
