POP Ice Cream Plaque by Deb Antonick

INSTRUCTIONS

Instructions:

• Seal the board with Gesso. Let dry, sand lightly.

• Basecoat with Warm White.

• Trace on the lettering.

• Line the lettering with Lamp Black or the pen.

Stamp –

Stamp the image using the stazOn or Ranger Archival Black ink pad.

Note: recommended when using Matte Medium as the ink will not smear.

• First stamp one ice cream onto a sticky note then cut it out. (This will be used as a mask when

stamping.)

• The ice creams will overlap slightly, so use the mask when stamping.

• Stamp the ice cream cones next, using the ice cream mask so the cone appears under the ice

cream.

• Use the Micron Pen to darken any imperfect stamp lines.

• Seal the entire surface now with DecoArt Matte Medium.

*Apply a coat of Matte Medium over the entire surface, let dry. I do this after stamping my

images so that the background is sealed. I can then wipe the paint off if I make a mistake and not

mess up the background.

Painting:

I painted all the images with very light washes of the DecoArt Fluid Acrylics using the IPC Small Point

Blender. I build up the shading colors by using the Fluid Acrylics at full strength with the 3/8” Angular

shading brush. Keeping the paint to the tip of the brush, it is easy to tuck the stronger color into the

corners to create depth. Use the Soft Flat Top to soften the floats.

The Fluid Acrylics dry quick so it is easy to add tints of other colors.

*After I paint my first soft colors, I like to add another thin coat of the DecoArt Matte Medium. It dries

quickly and any paint added over the Matte Medium can be wiped off with a baby wipe without

removing the paint below.

• Shade around the designs and the outer edge of the board with Cobalt Teal Hue.

Ice Cream –

• Paint all the ice creams with a very light wash of Hansa Yellow Light.

• Shade the ice creams (from left to right) as follows:

Cobalt Teal Hue. Deepen shading with Cobalt Turquoise Hue.

Quinacridone Violet. Deepen shading with Dioxazine Purple.

Burnt Umber. Deepen shading with Burnt Sienna.

Primary Magenta. Deepen shading with Quinacridone Magenta.

• Highlight with Titanium White.

• Paint the candies using the shading.
