Today, our Design Team members show just how magical Finnabair’s Mixed Media products are. Her dimensional products are masterpieces of design elements, capable of transforming the “ordinary” into something “extraordinary”. The paints and waxes in her line are the finishing touches to make everything come together into amazing creations.
“Today I am sharing my Steampunk Piggy! This pig is a ceramic figure which altered with lots of amazing Finnabair products. First I prepped the figure with a coat of black gesso. Next I painted it with various metallique, sparks and liquid acrylic paints. I fussy-cut some of the butterflies in the ‘Flutter’ decorative paper and glued these onto the body with Finn‘s soft matte gel. I cut a bow (cutting die) and top hat with my Silhouette (design ID 67665 and instructions here) from the Midnight Garden collection. I added some moulded embellishments which have been coloured with metallique waxes. I adorned the rest of of the pig and top hat with metal, chipboard embellishments, die-cut leaves, ribbon, chain and gorgeous Prima flowers.” – Tanya

I love using Finnabair products, because then the real mixed media magic happens. You can use the same paints, stamps, stencils and you will always get different projects! This time I altered the trash pieces from a chipboard. I think this interesting background perfectly complements the main composition here. What do you think?

I always loved Finn’s products. I think one of my all time favorite is her Rust Effect Pastes. I created this small shadow box mixing two sets (the original one and the Camouflage set). I also used some mechanicals, stickers and pebbles, all by Finnabair! I love the end result. This project was so fun to make!
