Hey friends, Namaste!!!
Today I am going to share a very easy up-cycled mixed media project. For this I have picked a burnt computer mother board. Well when you have a geeky husband, you are never in short supply of these ;-).
The pile of discarded boards, or “very valuable resources” as my hubby calls it, was really hurting the eyes. So, I decided to sneak out a few of them from their misery of gathering dust and give them a new life. They may never again do what they were supposed to do anymore but, once I am done with them, they indeed will have a different purpose in life.I hope I made a few processors happy ;).
So, I started by applying gesso all over the board and let it dry. Then a layer of black acrylic as a base color. The red,golden,green and brown are the primary choice of colors. Kept applying the colors till I was happy with the look. Once dry, applied a coat of acrylic silk color to bring out a metallic look. Took some glass beads and mixed it with texture paste and green acrylic color applied in few corners of the board… I did this to give a mossy texture on the board. Next was time for some embellishment, for that have used steampunk wheels which were colored with golden and bronze. Once stuck using glue…Wow!!! I really loved the final look. Though not intentional, but the top view has got a feel of Game of Throne intro scene.
Here you can see few pics of the final look of the project.
