Nothing to Bark At

It’s Sunday Fun Day y’all!  I hope you’re doing something beautiful;)

Today I’m bringing new life into something discarded.  I recently had a city work crew doing some digging and working on plumbing in my yard…in the process they scuffed up some bark on trees.  While I was out there cleaning things up I was just so struck by how beautiful these bits where that I scooped them up and saved them for just the right piece.

I began by applying some Haute Mess molding paste with a pallet knife.

While that was set aside drying I painted a clay face with Haute Mess “Bad & Tatted” acrylic paint.

I then rubbed a bit of “C-note” acrylic paint and then “Kiss & Don’t Tell” paint.

Now that the molding paste had dried I applied a coat of “Bad & Tatted” Haute Mess acrylic paint

I then glued the clay face on and applied some Haute Mess glass bead gel liberally to the edges and fanned it out.   I also rubbed a bit on the face itself to give it a little texture.

Once the glass bead gel dried I brushed on some Haute Mess “Make it Rain” acrylic pain and came back over it with a wet brush to blend it.

I did the same blending with the Haute Mess “Bye Felicia” acrylic paint.

After all the paints were dried I did a metallic rub to give it some shine and glued some green reindeer moss at the bottom before calling it done.
