To complement our "Classic" Fairy Door Range, we also now have a new range, the "Ultimate Fairy Door". This range includes a lot more Detail on the Doors and Additional Pieces to further enhance the design. There are currently 4 new designs available (though I'm currently working on more:-)....). The new designs are Woodland, Garden, Sweetheart and Hedgerow. Featured below are two of the designs painted by the lovely Caroline.
Caroline has produced a beautiful painted version of our new Woodland FairyDoor. She first painted everything with White Gesso, then overpainted the Door and Branch with a Brown Chalk Paint. Next Caroline dry brushed over the top with a stiff, old, brush with White and Green Chalk Paint. All the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and then the handle end of a fine paint brush was used to add Orange and Cream Dots. The next step was decorating the Oak Frieze. The Acorns and Leaves were painted with various shades of Green and Rust Chalk Paints. Once the Leaves and Acorns were dry she covered everything with Ranger Glossy Accents. The Door Handle was painted Gold and finally all the pieces were stuck together with PVA.
For the Hedgerow Fairy Door Caroline again started with a base coat of White Gesso on all the pieces. The Door and Branches were then painted with a Dark Greyish Brown Chalk Paint. Once Dry brush over with White and Green Chalk Paint using an old, stiff, Brush. Pick the Details out on the Door in Gold. Next Paint the Leaves and Berries with Shades of Green Chalk Paint and Red, Green and Black Chalk Paint for the Berries. Once dry she then covered the Berries with Ranger Glossy Accents, left to dry then added a few tiny stick on Gems for even more dimension, I particularly love this little added detail :-). Paint the Handle Black, here used instead as a Door Knocker (works equally well as either!) and finally assemble all the pieces with PVA.
