A Cracking Torso by Annette Goatley (nettyscraftings)

Hi, this is another first for me................altering a Torso.........oooh am having so much fun this month.


First I used Black Gesso to cover the Torso, then painted it with Viva Crackling Bronze keeping it fairly smooth.  Let it dry and then sculptured the Crackling Bronze to create texture and design.  After it was dry  I rubbed Inka Gold Copper over some of it.


Showing the back of the Torso so you can see the detail.  I am very pleased with the overall look of this piece as it looks so different to how it started out.  Even my husband likes it and thats got to be a first........lol
Take care, hugs Annette x

  18. This is gorgeous, how do you sculpture it, is it a paint or a knife technique. Must look on the web site for the name. Love the beautiful colours.
