experimenting as usual

This one doesn't photograph well as it has a high gloss finish but this is highly textured then finished in gloss with mica pigments in it to give an unusual distressed rust underneath the gloss.
The celtic stamp was done in stazon (black cherry ) on background. BUT also i used the stamp over melted red wax ( careful if you try it as it clogs the stamp so dont use a good one and be sure to clean immediately ) This gave a wax seal effect. I also scored and scratched the wax to get more movement.
Another of my crazy experiments but it was fun. I was quite pleased with the result but maybe will choose a more neutral colour base next time
