untitled






I began this creation last night at our regular Artzy Tartz nights, and finished it about 10 minutes ago...actually I am just waiting for everything to dry before I fix the acrylic face over the entire piece. The cabinet card is genuine and is well over 100 years old. Some of the products used include micaceous iron oxide (one of the few times I will actually wear gloves), the "nails" on my fence are actually brads that I have cut the posts from. I hand made the hat...I need to make a pile of these because it turned out soooo good, the texture on the frame and the fence is simply PVA glue. The flourishes are grungeboard that has been painted and then poked with a soldering iron.
Enjoy oggling this piece...it is going to it's new home on Tuesday...I wonder if the recipient is reading this?
