“Art is a kind of mining," he said. "The artist a variety of prospector searching for the sparkling silver of meaning in the earth.”
Of course I wore pink gloves altering these boxes to store some treasures in that I need to send off to some friends.
Using the Finnabair technique and my box of misfits.. items that never ended up back in their home or broken little things or flowers I would never use again .. until today.
Black gesso everything (13@rts gesso is the best ever) and then dry brush using the new alchemy paints from Prima which I used three colors :
On this box I thought why not, lets try a little deco art crackle glaze ...and ohh it did show through ... was not sure ( I did paint it on after the black gesso) . I am one that crackle and me never seem to get along .. but the deco art crackle has been a sure thing to date .. it has never disappointed!
My boxes are off to their new homes ... hope you get creating something magical today!
