Steampunk Patina Tag

It’s Kasia –  from a design team – I would like to share with you my latest project using the January Steampunk kit.

I used the Tim Holtz mixed media tag as they can take all the wet mediums.

I used the dark brown paint as a first layer, let it dry before applying cracking medium.

When cracking medium is kind of dry but sticky apply another layer of paint, this time I used the seamist

Let it cracked naturally or use a heat gun for a speed.

Use the mod podge medium to adhere the chosen piece from a beautiful rice paper from the kit.

Use the cayman blue paint and stencil to add some images to the background.

I used the small triangle make up sponge to dab it gently.

Ready to start building the layer. I got the piece of medical gauze and randomly placed it on the tag. I chosen the right bottom corner (roughly)…lol

To add some old look to it i dabbed it onto the brown distress ink ( it doesn’t have to distress ink… I just had it at hand)

Tear the piece of cork mat and twist the blue laced ribbon from the kit.

I used the hot glue to stick it down.

I started building up the image with the cogs… initially I thought I will use the little bottle with micro beads but changed my mind.

I also used the brown paint to stain the edges of the tag. I used the make up sponge to do so. I also patted the cogs randomly with the same paint.

Add the key and some mdf letters of your choice, I thought – Time – it be perfect.

I used the lush gold metallic paint to add colour to the letters and I actually added it to random places all over the tag ( cogs, cork).

And ready….


Have fun and explore your Steampunk kit,
