Wall Decor Art Piece!

Hello, everyone!
Happy October!

This is a month of the festive season and Diwali is my most favorite festival, so there is no question about what I love to create with the Mixed Media projects! 

You can surprise your guests and visitor this Diwali with your own handmade creation, no need to buy from the market now!

Today I want to show you my new MM project on coming festive occasion! And this month challenge is "Lights and Celebrations" at Rainbow Craftykari. This is my GDT post for them!

And here it goes.............!!!!!!

I converted a piece of plywood into a magical wall decor art. I coated it with Plaster of Paris with the textured look.

Gave a new life to Lord Ganesha.

Happy with the results using Fevicryl Pearl colors, Terracotta and Old gold Inka Gold!

Now time to create a background scene for Lord Ganesha.
Using air dry clay and a mould I made some embellishments to decorate and let it dry them for a full day.

Now given a coat of gesso to all of them. Don't worry about some cracks because they are very delicate, it will hide with some embellishments:) Fixed metal holders to hang the decor piece.

Applied lots of fevicol and sealant to paste them all.

Die cut lots of different flowers and leaves out of Iris paper, perfect for flower making.

Soak the flowers and leaves in the water bowl for a minute and inked them using distress inks.

Shaped them using golf groove tool and embossing pad as shown in the pic, perfect for textures and details.

Now time to create the background. Misted the piece with different color splashes. Firstly I started with turquoise color mist bottle at all 4 corners with the height of 4 or 4.5" gap. Then misted with midnight blue, not on the middle part because I wanted the Ganesha to highlighted in sunbursts color effect! Then misted with dirty pink near the pillars. After that misted with chalk ultramarine and golden canary. You will easily achieve the same results as shown in the pic.

Now rubbed all the white part using old gold and turquoise Inka gold to highlight the detailing work as shown in the pic. And applied a little bit at the surface and chippies too!

Here are some close-ups for the detailing work:

Rub some Inka gold on the metal charm OM word. Paste it on the tea holder and embellished it with some gemstones.

Now embellished the whole piece with my own handmade flowers and few rhinestones, gems. See the details in close-ups clearly!

And covered the backside with the corrugated sheet attached a heart-shaped border at the bottom.

Here is the finished project and ready to hang on the wall. I am really happy that this time I will decorate my Pooja place with my own wall decor piece!!! ­čśŐ

Isn't it gorgeous at all!!!

Hope you all enjoyed this project and try to make for yours one too to decorate your home this Diwali! Love to see what you come up with our new challenge here.
