This was one of my first four artworks in which I sank metal embellishments into wet medium, along with Fanfare and two others that I have not yet finished.
Here’s what it looked like wet, then dry:
That’s soft gel gloss in the center with the gears sunk in, and my favorite medium (at the moment), clear granular gel, on the top and bottom.
The gears I ordered from Amazon.com. I specifically chose one with 3 spokes, one with 4 spokes, and one with 5 spokes for this project. 😛
For the finishing touch, I added a little winged heart charm and a little touch of Inka Gold for highlights.
This one-of-a-kind artwork is for sale on Etsy!
Here’s the rather lengthy slideshow with extra pics:
