Paperartsy Blog challenge No 3 -- Paint

Paint is the challenge on the Paperartsy blog, which is very fortuitous as I have just finished a set of coat hangers for our cloakroom.
They were plain wood, so my first job was to seal them with Gesso. I then made a few fronts and a roof or two with metal and embossed them and rubbed treasure gold and a smudge of paint on them. Some of them I added texture with texture paste through stencils, and then painted them with Fresco paints. When they were dry I added a coat of crackle glaze to some of them, and then another coat of Fresco paint. The Paperartsy crackle glaze is the best one I have ever used and works every time. I used some fluid acrylic paint on some of the houses to highlight different areas.
PS If any of you enlarge the pictures, the size 16 hanger is not mine. ( honestly)
