Away with the Fairies !

so yesterday it was Unicorns, today I am away with the Fairies!  lol!

I bought a couple of Tando Fiary Door kits and this is one of them.    All the elements came in the kit, it was just a case of painting them and putting them together.

The kits comprise mdf and greyboard.

I coloured the door sections with distress inks, and applied a little UT embossing powder to get the blistered look.

The "stonework" was created by using Pebeo sand gel on the different sections before they were stuck on the base shape.  They were then painted with various shades of Pebeo Deco Creme to get the weathered look.

The hinges were painted with various shades of Decoart Media paints to get a slightly rusted metal look, and the door knocker had Pebeo guilding wax applied to it.

Finally the ferns and toadstool were painted with Pebeo paints, and the toadstool had UT embossing powder applied to give it dimension.

I have another fairy door as work in progress - this door was purchased from the works.   I used a stencil for the stone work.  More details when I get around to posting the finished item.
