Wooden bracelet, palette knife, brush, sponge brush
Apply a layer of structure paste to wooden bracelet with palette knife.
Tip: Structure paste is s thick product and after you opened a jar and used it partially it can get too dry while storing. But you do not need to use up the whole product each time. To prevent the product from drying out in the jar, just add a few drops of any Daily Art Varnish after each use. Add the varnish to the paste, mix thoroughly and close the jar. This will make our paste stay fresh.
Once the paste is dry, polish the surface with sandpaper to make the surface smooth and remove any sharp edges.
Color the bracelet using water based Wood Stain. I use honey color. The wood stain dries about 3-5 h.
Gently rub the bracelet with Daily ART Patina. I took violet Chameleon Patina for this step. It gives a delicate, pearly luster, which changes depending on the angle of light falling on the surface. Get a small amount of the patina on sponge brush and gently touch the bracelet with the brush. If you take too much of patina on your sponge or put too much effort the patina will get into the bracelet’s carvings.
Finally create aging effect using Daily ART Bitumen. Use sponge brush and small amount of Bitumen to tint the edges . Tint the edges heavily, while putting very small amount of bitumen on the rest of bracelet. Make few gentle movements without any effort, not to cover cover completely the patina effect added in step 5.
Protect the bracelet using gloss varnish and enjoy your piece of art!
