Jungle Drawer with Andy Skinner

Hello all, today I am on Andy Skinner blog to show you an altered drawer using the new Andy Skinner kit manufactured by Tando Creative, Compendium.

This gorgeous and very versatile kit will soon be in store. Stay tuned at Tando !

I used the biggest gear from the kit to create the main focal point of this piece. One of the greatest things of Tando 's greyboard is that, they are thick enough but also very flexible. I only needed to spray a little bit water and then it bent easily to fit the shape of the drawer.

There are many different shapes of parts in different details of the kit. I kept most of them as they are. I enjoyed using the negative part of the kit (the left over after you cut the parts out from the kit) as the background, and also a few here and there adding to the whole build up.

After putting DecoArt Media Texture Sand Paste on random areas of the whole piece, I coloured the piece using the colours listed below. Remember to use only small amount of paint when putting them on the surface. If you feel it is too heavy, spray with water or lightly pad with tissue and then add more layers until you are happy with it.

DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Transparent Yellow iron Oxide
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Vermilion
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Viridian Green Hue 
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Green Gold

DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Carbon Black

I used Andy 's new Illusionary Artists stamp set for the name plate.

The crackle is made with DecoArt Weathered Wood.


 Since this is a square shaped box, so basically it can shrift to another direction depend on which way you want to see it.

Please go check the new kits from Tando and also the new stamp sets ! 
Until next time !
