Mixed media box inspired by Pantone 2018 Colour of the Year - Ultra Violet (a tutorial)

The lovely Tina Walker invited us to participate in fun challenge inspired by Pantone 2018 Colour of the year - Ultra Violet. I really wanted to use this Give me some nude lip box that I got from Sephora during the Christmas sale for my project so I decided that I would just paint a mouth wearing ultra violet lipstick. :)

I covered the box with scrunched up wrapping tissue (from packaging) which I adhered with gel medium. Then I prep the box for colorants with gesso.

Next, I covered it with red mist and then a layer of purple mist to create depth in the layers of colours.

Then I went in with inks and acrylic paints. This took a bit of time...and a lot of wet tissues to create the desired effect of a dimensional mouth.

The brush pens and markers helped to make the process a little easier but I did have to go in with heavy body acrylic paints for the darkest shadows and highlights.

It was quite a fun challenge to partake in and it was possibly the first time my project ever turned out the way I envisioned it to...*winks* 

Happy week ahead friends! :)
