Now back to the Finnabair classes, she Signature Designer for Prima Marketing. I took all the classes offered on Sat and Sun. When you take a Finnabair class everything is provided by Prima #primamarketing. They give you a generous amount of supplies, lots of metal and resin embellishments goodies, canvas, clock, use of Prima paint, gels, mica powders, brushes and more. Long after the classes was over I still ended up using my supplies for other projects and of course ended up buying more supplies. I've been using other Prima products for three years now; the flowers have been my fave and I used them in my art. All of Prima and Finnabair products are simply stunning and fun to work with. I found Finn to be nice and patient will all us. Well enough of my love sick weekend with Prima and Finnabair. I will now show you the projects I created.
This is the altered clock. I call this piece Father Time, it's the feeling it gives me. Love all the goodies we were given to make this.
This a book we altered using Rust Effects paint from Finnabair's Art ExtraVagance line. I carved out the pages and made into a keepsake box instead, I did this at home, you need to do this slowly and patiently. The pages have been glued and sealed together using Finnabair's Sculpting Medium (not used in class, but learned about this product during this weekend. It is used to stiffen fabric and had bought for this very reason. I tried several gels and glues. I found this to be the best product for gluing the pages; it's very strong and formed the pages similar to a cast for a sculpture consistency, without warping the pages.
This is the Flaming Heart Triptych project. This is the piece that made fall in love with the Opal Magic Powders, specially the gold one. I literally use it on everything, it's how I finish my projects. Love that super fine shimmer, it's finer than regular mica powder. I tried in Resin on mulberry paper...love, love the effect in Resin.
