I have seen a pair of these rustic angel wings on Internet from 'The Little Bluebird Gallery" and thought I would make my own.
I began with a white primed canvas, 10 inches by 12 inches. I painted the entire canvas with a dark gray acrylic paint then I went over that with a lighter gray paint and before that dried I made a rough outline of a pair of wings.
Using a palette knife I used white paint to sketch in the wings and let them dry.
Next I used Mod Podge to add a few pieces of white lace paper doilies, music paper and paper roses to my wings.
Then I used Mod Podge to add some texture to the wings and let that all dry overnight.
The next morning, again using a palette knife, I added some blue, aqua and brown paint to the wings and after those were dry I went over all that with white paint, leaving a little of the color showing through.
Next I added white, aqua and a few touches of silver to the background. Then let all that dry and gave the final painting a coat of sealer to finish the piece.
This was my first attempt at using a palette knife to paint these rustic shabby wings. Can't wait to try this technique again. When these wings were dry I hung them on the wall in our living room.
