Butterfly Anatomy Tutorial

My inspiration for this came from Michael Demengs Strange Angels, I love his assemblage art work and colours

 I had acquired a resin torso sculpture and decide to give it a make over and applied a variety of embellishments using DecoArt Media Liquid Glass

Once dry I applied Media White Gesso

Applied a second coat as the original finish was very dark

Applied Media Crackle Paste with a brush to the base and to areas of the torso

 Resulting in fabulous crackle texture

Started by applying DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Quinacridone Gold

  Followed by Burnt Umber and Prussian Blue, spritzing the colour and allowing to run until happy withe the coverage

Same process to the base

Stamped with Stazon Midnight and Teal around the base and build up the density of colour
with light brush strokes

 Applied Quinacriodone Gold and Prussian Blue to some paper butterflies
