I am here today on the blog with a lovely post.This project is very close to my heart due to several reasons.Let me show you a picture of the project first and then talk more on this.
Yes you can call it recycling and I totally loved doing each bit of it.This is quiet an old palette almost 10 year old when I started doing oil paintings. After some time I also started teaching oil paintings, once one of my student took this palette to her home, did her work but forgot to clean colors from it. She came back to me after some four months with this and a new palette. She was feeling very sorry and offered me the new one instead…I took the old one but and gifted her new one, for all these years it was lying with me, didn’t know what and how to use it. Few days back I took it out and decided will try my mixed media skills on this, the outcome is infront of you. Few more pictures with close ups.

Instructions to do:
Since there was already lot of dried paint on the palette so I took it as an advantage to use as background,painted with white gesso (u can try painting with white acrylic as well)and let it dry.After that I did some stencilling with modelling paste on the white painted base.When the modelling paste dried I stuck few diecuts,old brushes,used paints tubes and small piece of white net with tacky glue.Again painted all over with white gesso and let it dry.Then my motto was to fill colors in this white palette for which I used Lindy’s Sprays.Since the colors were very light I gave two three coats of spray work.Then I stuck some diamond dust around with the help of multi medium matte and gave last coat of sparys.Stuck the mdf which I pre painted with sprays,and metal embellishments with some cup sequins.I also added some sentiment tiles to the palette to make it more meaningful.Lastly I attached few handmade flowers and a resin frame . Once again I filled life in my palette and that made me super happy.
