I have been dying for an excuse to wear Zoya Tamsen again and waiting for autumn to arrive just wasn’t good enough, when I spotted MoYou Rebel 2 (a Banksy inspired plate) I knew EXACTLY how I was going to make Tamsen work out of season. I used just one easy coat of this beautiful tomato red as a base for my art (you will probably need two if you are wearing it alone though). For anyone who doesn’t know Banksy is a world famous anonymous graffiti artist who works creating these satirical/political images in public spaces; he is believed to have originated in Bristol which is where my family is from so I feel a special connection there too.
Once this was dry I grabbed my MoYou Pro XL 01 and added Barrym Matt White over this interlocked design – to give it a faded patchy look I double scraped as I wanted the print to be imperfect, faded and more brick like. If you do this you have to work quick to get the design off the plate as the paint will be super thin and drying quickly but it’s not too bad once the image is up on your stamper.
Finally, using Konad Black Special Polish and MoYou Rebel 2 – I added my small girl and her lost ballon. The images and details on this plate are TINY – I didn’t get a perfect balloon stamp but over all I am very impressed with the intricacy that MoYou have managed to achieve. I also like that these images are going to work on small nails because they easily could have been too big for my nails. I have muchos plans for the rest of this plate, so many interesting and inspiring images to work with. Yes, this in my cinderella hand, it was naked when the plate arrived – she’s been on my blog so much lately maybe she’s not so cindy anymore…
