Hola and Hi to all my wonderful friends and followers.
Like I promise here is the part 3 of this one of a kind tea light fairy house.
I hope everyone enjoy the step by steps instructions and feel free to share it with all your friends.
Now in this 3rd part I will be showing you how I use a few techniques to paint this magical fairy tea light house with one of my most favorite wood spirit Totoro from the Studio Ghibli film My Neighbor Totoro.
For this project I used some of my previous FolkArt and DecoArt Acrylic paints
Here is the color list:
FolkArt Licorice Black
FolkArt Antique Copper
FolkArt Rose Shimmer
FolkArt Metallic Inca Gold
FolkArt Metallic Christmas Green
FolkArt Metallic Periodot
DecoArt Festive Green
DecoArt Renaissance Brown
I like to do a couple of coats when I paint my Creative Paperclay pieces just to make sure I have a nice coverage and protection for the final piece. Make sure you wait in between coats to make sure is all dry so the second coat adheres propertly to the clay.
Start covering the truck of the fairy house with the FolkArt Metallic Inca Gold.
To color the top of the house use the FolkArt Metallic Inca Gold for the stump with FolkArt Metallic Inca Gold and the base colot of the roof leaf FolkArt Metallic Periodot and make sure you use to coats for each color.
Now lets give a nice coat for the grass with the DecoArt Festive Green.
To give the roof a nice 3d effect use the FolkArt Metallic Christmas Green and apply a water down mixture very carefully. You can use a wet down paper towel to remove any excess if you think is too thick after you applied the acrylic paint down.
Now this will only work if the paint still wet so make sure you inspect the piece carefully before you leave it to completely dry.
To create a nice accent tone door use the FolkArt Champagne has a base and give it two complete coats and let it dry.
The best way to bring any texture up is to apply a darker color in this case DecoArt Renaissance Brown. I have notice it works best if you water down the paint so the pigments will go down the crevices of the sculpted piece. Again dont be afraid to apply a much since you will be using a wet paper towel to remove any excess paint. this techique work best to exposure the nice sculpted texture you left behind . This really brings the rock appearance of the front door and the grain of the tree bark.
We also want to give the grass a nice and natural effect for that we need to add a few layers of colors. For the second layer use a nice water down mixture of the FolkArt Metallic Christmas Green. The more you water it down the easier it will pool in all those tiny little grass we previously sculpted. You can remove any excess again with a wet paper towel.
Tip: Always use a new Paper towel for each color you will be removing so your piece will not be stain with the older previous color you already removed.
It is now time to color the cute little flower and for that we will be using the FolkArt Rose Shimmer.
Feel free to apply two nice thick coats. No water downs for this step.
Remember to leave the window frames for last. The reason for that is you want them to be bold and clean colored. Use two thick coats of FolkArt Champagne.
Now you can see how all these steps came down nicely to create your one of a kind Tea Light Totoro Fairy house. A very lovely way to recycle any old baby food glass jar.
The little house is ready for a cute little LED tea light and it will bright your night away.
