Peace at Christmas by Teresa Morgan

So on to tonight's blog post with Teresa, she has taken large MDF letters, our beautiful Christmas resins and made another stunning Christmas project. 

Its also in my Christmas colours and would look stunning on any fireplace or windowsill :)

Paint the MDF letters and plaque with a couple of coats of metallic paint, and set aside to dry.

    Give the resin shapes a coat of gesso and let dry. 

    Mix a little gold gilding polish with water to create a wash and apply to the resins allowing the colour to settle in the details. 

    Once dry, use your finger to apply white gilding polish to the surface, highlighting the texture.

    Use heavy gel medium to attach the letters and resin shapes, then use a coarse texture paste to create 'snow' around the base of the letters.

    Sprinkle white and silver sand over the texture paste while wet to add extra interest, and add silver and gold Sparkle Spheres, along with white Pearl art balls. 

    Apply a small amount of gel medium to the tops of the MDF letters and sprinkle white sand over for more snowy detail.

    Thanks Teresa
