It's thyme to show you a Prim Bunny


Today 
I am going to show you a design 
by
Terrye French 
that I have painted
called
PRIM BUNNY BOWL 


The original design was painted by
Sharon Bond
for 
PAINTING WITH FRIENDS
Sharon used a wood bowl for the design
I used a small wood breadboard
to complete my project



My Pallette 


Honey Brown, Lamp Black, Traditional Burnt Umber, Driftwood, Bleached Sand, Warm White, Shading Flesh, Dark Chocoalate, Wisteria, French Grey Blue, Celery Green, Antique Green, Marigold and Mocha

Supplies

Homespun, grungy tag, old tooth brush for paint spatter, white candle, sanding disc, graphite paper, fine line permanent black marker



I first base coated my bread board using
 Lamp Black
When dry I took a candle and rubbed areas that I wanted to look worn,
mostly around the edges and the handle.
I then painted over the Lamp Black with Honey Brown.
I used my sanding disc to sand the areas where I had applied the wax
allowing the initial Lamp Black base coat to show


I used graphite paper to transfer the 
bunny design
I then base coated the bunny


I dry brushed the highlights


Painting the basket and crow


Adding the final details!
I used diluted Lamp Black and a liner brush to out line my project
I applied 2 coats 
of 
Americana Dura Clear Matte Varnish 


to my finished piece

When dry I used diluted 
Lamp Black 
with an old toothbrush to spatter my piece
I used a piece of paper to cover my bunny 
and 
only spattered the
background!



I made a "grungy" tag and wrote 
Prim Bunny 
on it!
(you can find my grunging recipe by clicking on the recipe tab at top of page)

I tied my tag on with homespun


Here is my finished Prim Bunny project!

DecoArt provided me with the paints to complete this project

"Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. 
Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, 
and 
at the end of the day you don't look at it 
and 
wish you had painted something different."
