Having more fun with my chipboard couture girls! Surprisingly easy to paint, because all the details are etched in. It's kind of like painting by numbers. You can't go wrong! I again used Claudine Hellmuth paints and gesso for this project. I brushed a light coat of gesso over the entire piece. I painted her skin with a mix of Blank Canvas, Painterly Pink and Modern Red. Her dress is a mix of Sky Blue and A Smidge of Blue with some Blank Canvas thrown in for highlights. I used Golden paint for hair because their colors are true and the consistency is perfect for blending texture. I first use Burnt Sienna and then blended in Raw Umber. Her shoes are A Smidge of Blue with some stickles mixed in. You can never have enough glitter! After painting,I used a new Prima stamp from their Tea Thyme collection and embossed it with gold onto the dress. There is a tiny Prima rose that I dipped in a puddle of blue stickles and a couple of rhinestones for some extra bling. She is ready to be popped on a card, scrapbook page or even a small canvas.
