Surprise Witch Pumpkin Spooks Door Hanger by Deb Antonick

  1. Seal all the wood pieces with a coat of Gesso.
  2. Paint with a brush mix of Orange Flame and Tangerine so both colors show.
  3. Seal with a coat of DecoArt Matte Medium. Let dry.
  4. Load the brayer Lamp Black and roll onto the stamp, then stamp the orange ornaments.
  5. Cut circles to fit from old dictionary paper.
  6. Adhere to the ornaments with DecoArt Matte Medium.
  7. Paint over each paper circle with a watered down coat of Gesso. Let dry.
  8. Apply a coat of the Matte Medium over the entire ornament to seal. Let dry.
  9. Stamp the images with StazOn Jet Black Ink Pad or Ranger Archival Black Ink Pad.
    *these are the only the only 2 inks that I have found that will not smear with the DecoArt Matte Medium. If you have other ink pads, please test first.
  10. Shade/tint around the outer edges of the ornaments and the circles with Lamp Black.
  11. Start painting the images with the DecoArt Fluid Acrylics.
    I always paint the images first with the Fluid acrylic watered down, for example: paint the circles with watered down Hansa Yellow Medium, then deepen the color around the stamped image with the color full strength.
  12. After you have all the first color layers complete and dry, apply a coat of the DecoArt Matte Medium to seal. This will allow you to continue your layers and remove any mistakes quickly with a Baby Wipe without messing with the first layers.
  13. Continue to build up your color layers and adding tints of other colors for added interest to your images. By sealing between your favorite layers with Matte Medium, you can continue to play and create without worry.
    Use the photos and the color selection listed as a guide.
  14. Use the Faboolous stamp set for words and embellishments. Ink the edges, then adhere the words with the DecoArt Matte Medium.
