Happy spring Everyone !!Today  I would like to show you new project . I’ts altered jar with awesome steampunk mermaid inside. I like to altered some old bottles or  jars, and transform them into something different and magical. I love fantasy creatures and I just had vision in my head to create underwater world in a jar. This is the reason why I love love love Creative Embellishments chipboards they have a huge selection of fantasy magical chippies like : unicorns, mermaids or dragons. Ok here we go !


First I layer coat of clear gesso on my jar , while the gesso is still wet I start layering some gazue, In some places I add some  crackle clear paste and white crackle paste.I altered gears and rings with black gesso . When it dry I glued all metal keys ,cogs , cabochons and seaweed on the jar .I also add some real shells , microbeads and texture sand paste .I left  the jar to dry overnight ,because I used lots of gesso and glue.
To create inside of the jar I used reindeer moss for a background , then I placed some sheels and small old bottle .I painted this beautiful steampunk mermaid with black gesso and some mettalic colors .I also covered seaweed with white gesso and painted with green tones .
On the top of the jar I glued steampunk clock and metal flower. I painted them with acrylic paints an mettalic paints .
In the last step I add some sea colors. I started with the greens and then I used some blue tones. Misting all around the jar.
