Mirror, mirror on the wall, an altered cutting board - Prima Marketing


How are you on this Monday? This project makes me think about the magic mirror of the Queen in the Snow white, but actually it a cutting board altered with a new Memory Hardware resin frame and chipboard butterfly wings. The project was shared along with a couple other's in the first of the Finnabair product reveals (link).


For this project I used the new Finnabair Waxes. I wish you could see this piece live! The photo doesn’t show the shine the waxes create to the surface! They are really metallic and shiny!

I covered the whole thing with some white gesso, then added watercolors on top and after they were completely dry, started layering the waxes on top. I mainly worked with “Vintage Silk” and “White Gold” on this one, but mixed some colors in there as well, just here and there. That's so easy to do with the waxes as it's easy to control the amount you are using and the pressure you are using. Some of the texture around the frame is created with the new beads.

Fairy-tale like start to the week! 


Materials: Prima Marketing, Scrap FX, Ranger
