Over to Dawid...

My name’s Dawid. I’m from Poland and live in small village in west part of country. I’m receptionist in old palace in dendrological garden. I always loved a handicraft. I started as a child when my mom taught me a cross sticht and crochet. When I finished a studies I discovered a parchment craft and cardmaking. A little bit time later I started to create in mixed media technique and it’s my favourite technique today.

My Project

                                                         About project:
I love altered things, because even the broken things and something what looks like a garbage we can change in something nice and beautiful.  I decided to change old can in something new – container on brushes or pens. I chosen a black color and a little metallic finish. For main decoration I chosen dragonfly.

1. I took old can. I had a can of peas.
2. I covered all can with two layers black gesso. Next I mixed black gesso with magic powder getting in this way a black modelling paste. I added a pattern from stencil with this paste.
3. I added  first  layer embellishments. I glued a twine and metallic embellishments. In next step I covered all with black gesso. On this layer I added next embellishments and I painted every next element with black gesso.
4. I’ve made three different colors of wax mixing together clear wax and shiny powders. The last step was to finish the project by adding waxes in three colors: lustered black, red bronze and shimmer mauve. I added waxes only on the embellishments which allowed to highlight all details.”

Thank you Dawid for this beautiful project.
Wish you all the best.
