This one has a coat of Irrid. Bronze. It was watered down quite heavily and I found that watering it down didn't distort the image and was actually easier to work with. It seeped into the creases and grooves and I didn't need to work it in with the brush so much.
This again is the watered down Irrid. Bronze. Left this one patchy, not sure if I want to leave it like that or add another colour??
This has a coat of Quin NA Gold with a brushing of Irrid. Bronze over the top.
This one I started out by dry brushing the HB Burnt Umber. I found it was a little too sticky for the TP casting and started to lift the layers. I then applied a watered down mix of NA Gold and Black to fill in the white patches. Once dry I applied a little Treasure gold to pick up the detailing. I then tore around the image to roughen up the look.
I actually quite like the subtlety of this piece, even more so now that I see it on here! I think I will give all the finished pieces a couple of coats of Gel Medium or GAC to add a little strength, especially the one on the book cover.
Okay, my back is aching from sitting at this computer and I have retreat kits to load on to the online shop
