A very interesting and unusual steampunk decorating technique deserves your attention! It combines vintage, modern style with a touch of retro. Faded copper shades make the steampunk technique unique and really cool! We offer you to evaluate two master classes: the first - how to make panels in the steampunk style, the second - decorating an ordinary bottle using the same technique.
To do this, prepare a surface for work: for example, boards painted white.
Glue a stencil with gears and other elements of any mechanism on the tape. Apply the embossing paste evenly.
You can add several protruding elements - glue volumetric gears.
The next task is to paint. The first layer is black, stroked onto the surface with a dry brush to highlight the elements.
The next layer is turquoise, also applied with a dry brush. Then repeat the layer of black paint again to select the elements.
Add a copper tint layer to give it an antique look.
The last layer is a lot of turquoise to give the finished work that very steampunk style. The work is over!
