- Part Seven – Big Bows
- Part Eight – Colouring the Bow
With the bow finished, coloured and protected, I turned my focus back to the main wreath and adding the third layer of stars, this time in ivory.
I didn’t want to add too many as I didn’t want to cover too many of the stars which were already there. So I added about 15 in those obvious spaces between the existing stars. (By the way – that is the bow I have covered, so it wouldn’t get “splattered”.
I mixed about 2/3 Powertex to 1/3 balls as I wanted to “flick” the balls on to make it looks like it had snowed. Usually I closer to half and half when working on a 3D model or I just pat them straight onto a canvas if I am working on a 2D level.
Here is a HINT – if you are going to flick Powertex everywhere, cover all surfaces or even better go outside – you may be picking off drops for weeks!
I know from experience, I will need to leave this for a couple of days to make sure all the balls are dried into place before colouring as they can come off very easily before they are completely dry, I have had no problems once they are dry!
