Cottage Caddy (with goopy mixture recipe)
Mason Jar Caddy
Here it is used in a different way.
First mix up the goop. I made this batch yellow.
Be generous glopping the goopy mixture on - I used a palette knife to spread it at an even thickness.
You can use very expensive texturizing tools, but I just used a plastic fork. I find they work almost as well as the high end tools.
You can choose whatever design you wish to use. I wanted several styles of free forms in this project.
Next apply a glaze. I made my own with glaze medium and some burnt umber craft paint. I rubbed it on with a paper towel.
You have a choice here. Rubbing the glaze deep into the cracks or rubbing lightly over the top. It just depends on what you want to highlight.
I let the glaze dry, then sanded with a fine sanding sponge.
The texture distresses the finish to my satisfaction.
Now you are asking yourself, "Self, what in the world is this?"
Well, folks, I am not telling you.
You will just have to visit Inspiration Cafe on Tuesday where my post will be kicking off the Junkin' Jewels series.
Hope you will come to visit.
