I crocheted this fan, stitched it onto a handdyed scrap of fabric. I painted it with 2 layers of Gesso, being carefull not to fill the little gaps of the crochet motif. I wanted to keep the relief.
I mixed black and cerulean blue acrylic paint to get a nice steel blue. I painted one layer of this mix, again making sure not to loose the relief. after letting it dry overnight, I took setacolor opaque in the color shimmer pearl and first painted the whole piece with it and then whiped it off with a piece of kitchen roll. it has a nice shine and kinda feels like thin leather. I love how it turned out. I will continue making it into an ATC. and I will sure this technique more often. whoever wants to swap this ATC can leave me a comment.
