Dear crafting friends.
At last I found a gumball machine, and the first I thought about when I saw it was: I must make it RUSTY!
This is the finished gum ball machine. I just love Finnabairs rust pastes.
This is how the little sweet machine look like when I bought it.
I started with coloring the blue parts with Finnabairs heavy black gesso.
After I colored it black I covered it with Patina Effect Paste Brass. And the brown rust effect paste I like how it makes the surface look so dirty and ruff.
I added some red rust effect paste.
Last I took the patina effect paste brass and made all ruff edges a bit shimmering.
I colored some sunbeams direct on the transparent part with the patina effect paste brass. I cut out this sun and swirled some of the sunbeams a little bit in the edges before I glued it.
I added some pearls from my stash at the sun and around the knob on top and colored them as the rest of the gum ball machine.
Thanks for watching!
