This mixed media altered art piece started with a thrift store paint brush. I was very inspired by a tutorial I saw on Finnabair’s blog (www.finnabair.com). Three dimensional gears, bolts, and metal art pieces were attached to the brush after it was primed with clear gesso. Then I followed the tutorial using Finnabair’s Art Extravagance Patina Paste Set to paint it with the blues and bronze colours. The two blue pastes provide a gritty aged texture while the bronze paint offers up a glorious metallic shimmer.
