Parses I somehow their bins, and found great clay jar. Where and under what circumstances it was bought, I do not remember at all. And I think I’m done with it something interesting. Time passed, but the idea was not born … And suddenly I had a template with fruit. Four motive on the stencil … four faces at the banks … Size fits perfectly. And I started to work, not realizing until the end, what I want to get in the end …
So it all started here with this:

Stencil I paid a modeling paste to the surface of the fruit silhouettes banks

And at this stage, I thought again … what to do next … and I decided to do an imitation of lapis lazuli with gold ornament. From that moment everything began to take shape.
First, I paint over the entire surface of dark blue paint

and sponge inflicted chaotic their spots. It is important to avoid the symmetry here because we’re going to simulate a natural material!

Once all the layers dry out (it is important that the layers do not mix, and went to another one), I also dealt with a sponge turquoise paint

The great thing here is that it is impossible to spoil anything))) -If you feel that too much is applied or turquoise ultramarine, you can always go to these places again a dark blue paint. I think that the more layers will be viewed under each other, the bigger and deeper will look like “a stone”. The result should be a granular layer of paint.

Now everything can be good Place and proceed to the next stage-painting, imitating the veins of lapis lazuli. To do this you need white, paint and thin brushWhite should be mixed with varnish, so they purchased a transparent, slightly moisten the prepared surface, and a thin brush with a trembling hand))) to draw the veins. This is probably the most difficult stage. Better, of course, before the eyes have a photo of the lapis lazuli

Again, all the varnish … And there are still add another touch, typical of this lapis lazuli, gold flecks. To do this, take the golden light paint

and a stiff brush or toothbrush scrutiny gold paint sprayed in some places. Do not do it evenly over the entire surface! And even better a little practice on paper. Prepare a cotton swab to remove the slice could be too large droplets.

Once again, we cover the entire surface of the nail, wait until dry and proceed to the design of the bulk of the ornament.
I had planned to use for this portal. But I did not want it to be a thick layer of gold. So I decided to first draw the bulge all gold paint, and already the top in some places stick portal. So I did. First paint

And yet I wanted to give a small amount of fruit, and I am using colored flakes Portal added chiaroscuro We cover everything together several layers of gloss varnish to give depth “lapis lazuli”. And here we have “the stone” the capacity for storage of bulk products.
