Pink Roses Decorative Cross
Home made rubber mold
1
Add plaster mix to mold, tap to release air bubbles. Let dry and harden, about an hour
2
Pour decorations as well, in this case roses 🌹
3
I’ll pour 7 total for this project
4
I color wash my roses with a really thin paint/water mix so there will be depth, also fills crevices
5
Choose your base color. I use plain old acrylic paints
6
Dry brushing takes awhile, but it’s worth it! Add very little paint in layers
7
1 down, 6 to go 🥵
8
You thought we were done? 🤣
9
Add your secondary color, I went a little lighter on this one
10
I already painted the back of the cross to save time
13
I drill holes in each interior corner
14
Add your color then let dry completely
15
Minky Moo watched the paint dry 🥰
16
With 2 dogs, this lint roller is always near by when doing artwork 😆
17
I like the faux aged look, so any brand of antiquing medium will work. Heavily coat your object with 1 layer of the gel
18
Usually you will wipe off the excess gel, but I liked the imprints the micro fiber cloth left
19
Remember the holes we drilled? Adding pre-made plaster leaves with wire stems. I also use a heavy glue
21
Once the glue starts to stiffen, I’ll come back and wipe off the excess
22
Dry run on flower lay out
23
If you like the arrangement, add the strong glue and commit!
24
And the next day....
26
Your lovely Pink Rose Cross

Is ready to hang up and love for many years 🤗
