Balon w stylu steampunk od Tracey / Steampunk Hot Air Balloon with Tracey

Hello dear Studio75 fans. It's Tracey back with a new project to share. I altered this amazing Woodouts Balloon Mixed Media Base with mixed media products and a combination of Scrapiniec Chipboard, Mitform Castings metal pieces, moulded shapes and vintage pieces from my stash to create this fabulous steampunk home decor piece. Check out all the details below in the tips and techniques section with lots of close-ups.

Tips and Techniques
 To add texture to the background of the Woodouts Balloon Mixed Media Base, I applied plaster paste through the SnipArt Up In the Air Damask Stencil. I just adore this design, and it has become of my favorite go to stencils these days. Once dry I spritzed with blue color mist then a small amount of beige and copper. I also misted with water to help the colors move and blend.

I just adore these Mitform Casting pieces. The Steel Padlock piece on the left is from the Studio75 store. The fabulous metal pieces available in the store can be found HERE. I rubbed the metal pieces with brass, bronze, and teal art wax to age with a little patina.

 I adore going to a large community yard sale with my sister every year, and I am always on the lookout for items I can use for my art pieces. This cool spark plug is one of my finds. The other metal pieces in this close-up are a combination of bought gears, and bolts along with pieces that I moulded, painted, and waxed to give this vintage patina effect. I also added art wax to the metal parts of the spark plug.

 More rusty goodness including rusty washers I've picked up on when I find them laying on the ground when I'm out and about along with vintage keys - another yard sale find.

This cool pressure gauge is also one of my finds. Doesn't it fit perfectly into the notch on the Mitform Castings Steel Padlock? A little moulded sprocket on the gauge adds to the steampunk feel.

 These fabulous Scrapiniec Chipboard Steampunk Flying Hearts XL Wings are a perfect fit across the Woodouts Balloon! I painted them with a mix of brass and teal paints, then rubbed with metallic art wax to add to the grungy aged metal effect.

 The Scrapiniec Focus Small Arrows were a perfect fit around this vintage drawing compass, and also added a few Scrapiniec Confetti Stars below the wings. These chipboard pieces were finished with the same products as the wings. I dyed some cheese cloth with the color mists and to tuck in for added texture. As I glued down the metal elements, the cheesecloth was secured in place. 

I brushed a mix of rusty/patina paints around the metal objects and spritzed with water so that it looks like they have been there and weathered to rust in place.

These faux metal chains are also from the Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts XL Elements set. Isn't it amazing how paint and waxes can make them look just like aged metal? I used a couple more Mitform Casting pieces to give definition to the balloon basked and added a vintage couple into the opening to enjoy the flight.

I used Bambino Glue to adhere beaded texture in place. Because it dries clear, it the perfect adhesive for these little bits of texture.
