Today I’m sharing a new mixed media project. I have got these old school roller skates in my stash for a while. And now I decided to alter these. I also did a step-by-step video for you to watch at my YouTube-channel.
I started to paint them with white gesso. To prepare them for all the coloring.
Then I started to decorate them. I added chipboard pieces, metal keys, metal pieces, paper flowers, fabric letters and strings, screws, cardboard cogs, flower pot stones and lace.
Then I painted them again with white gesso. It’s good with several layers.
Next, I started to add color. I started with acrylic paint in pink and purple. Thinned it with water.
I also sprayed them with ink sprays in purple and pink.
Next, I enhanced the textures with Inka Gold in two colors.
Then, I dry-painted them with white gesso to lighten up the color and to enhance the textures some more.
Finally, I decorated with purple rhinestones here and there.
Have a crafty day!
