Dixie Belle & Woodubend Steampunk Makeover!
Boring brown trunk. Let’s give it a steampunk makeover! Clean well with White Lighting.
1
Let’s add some WoodUBend! Dixie Belle carries over 50 exclusive WoodUBend designs.
2
The Gears are # 56 & 515 on the Dixie Belle paint page. Listed under tools. The others are partial bits. Use wood glue to apply.
3
Heat the back. Apply wood glue. Apply the WoodUBend to the surface. Heat again. Ready for paint! Bendable around surfaces!
4
Let’s paint a black wash using Caviar & Midnight Sky.
5
This is a simple way to add a touch of paint while the wood still peeks through.
6
Let’s rust things up! Patina style!
7
Patina spray used was Green. The Patina line from Dixie Belle offers a amazing way to faux finish items.
8
Patina paint used on this piece - Bronze & Iron. You must use a paint and a spray to activate. It’s a chemical reaction with the paint!
9
I like to use a chip brush and add texture. Applying where the rust and patina will be.
10
I used less of the Bronze patina paint. Just to highlight areas. Spray liberally when wet to activate.
11
Wait to dry. Watch the activation happen over time. This chemical reaction changes the color of the Patina paint!
12
I sealed the entire piece in Flat Clear Coat. Goes on milky and dries clear.
13
I added Best Dang Wax in Black to the edges with my French Tip brush.
14
Let’s accent with Gilding Wax. I applied Bronze and Copper with a small brush. This adds depth and shine.
15
This works well on raised detail.
16
I used Big Mama’s Butta to condition the old leather. This gave it a renewed color and conditioned.
17
Amazing depth and color. Highlights and shine.
