What a wonderful addition to your autumn and Halloween decorating! Although these mystical boots don’t have to be just for Halloween – they can be made any color and used year round where you want to add a little “magic” to your decor! While the results of these fun boots look intricate and complex, creating them is actually very simple. They are made using several different techniques, and many of them can be optional to create your own unique look.
To create my samples, I used stenciling, crackling and Margot’s MUD texture finish to create the beautiful floral designs. I then ‘dry brushed’ the raised flowers using DecoArt’s Metallic Lustre acrylic wax to highlight and give it a wonderful ‘antiqued’ look.
Using Margot’s MUD is fun and easy. In most cases, you can easily ‘freehand’ your designs to suit any surface. Once you learn the basic steps, the possibilities are endless! For more great tutorials and videos on the MUD process, please visit Margot’s site. (www.margotclark.com) It is full of informational videos and tutorials, as well as great starter kits to get you MUDDING fast! Once you start, you will certainly want to add MUD to many of your other painting projects.
