DIY Tutorial: Dimensional "Fly High" Wings Using Perfect Paints!

I had this idea of creating dimensional wings on a surface that I could cut and add to a project, so I used Perfect Paints Polishing Plasters and Shimmering Paints to create dimensional wings on a piece of cardboard, and let it dry. Then cut around the plastered area to make independent wings. I found a little chalkboard sign lying around and added some fun lettering to create some fun home decor. I love it when an idea in my head comes to life right before my eyes.

I grabbed a used paintbrush that was all dried up that was the perfect size to be the body, painted it with Bright Gold, Vintage Patina, and Shadow.

I cut out a separate piece of cardboard to bridge the gap and glued it to the wings to create a stable backing.

I started adding the letters to the board that the wings were going on. I added some splashes of paint in Bright Gold and Vintage Patina on the wood trim to give it a bit of distress.
