Mixed Media Vintage Camera

I wanted to make something nice for my dearest Spanish friend Nunu
So I altered this camera for her. Her only request is that she doesnt like brown colors. So I completely avoid that shade and used a lighter but still vintage tone.

I used Finnabair Impasto acrylic paints as the main colorings. Pitch black, Aubergine and Cobalt. And dont forget the Snow White to do all the highlight shades.

The original camera is this.

The texture is made by Art Ingredients Art Stones and Mega Art Stones. Texture powder is also mixed with the acrylic paints for more sandy effect.(Please click the photos to see the enlarge version)

The reason why I have chosen a camera is because my dear friend Nunu is a photographer. I believe a vintage camera has special meanings to every photographer and I want this to be one of the things that tells her how precious her work is.

 One of the fun of this project is to mix Distress Oxide with Impasto. They work very well with each other and blend really well.
I want to have the matte tone of Impasto on the other hand I also need the light color shades fm the Distress Oxide. So this formula is a win-win position !!

A video is uploaded here 

I hope you enjoy this project. thank you!
