Altered Ecelectics DT Piece - Altered Letter Rack

This particular beauty has caused me lots of problems, when I bought it, it was a hideous orange colour which refused to be covered, so eventually I got there and this is the result.


I acheived this (finally) by gessoing the whole thing three times before using my PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints on, I started with Little Black Dress, followed by crackle glaze, then this was topped with Antarctic and left to work.  Once dry I washed Bora Bora over the top and finally coloured  Maimeri artist medium with Dusty Teal and used this through the Imagination Crafts Stencil Tropical Leaf.
