It's time for my new piece for Finn's blog: a bit thought- provoking assemblage.
The world demands from us accurateness and appropriateness. We are tied with bans and wound up playing our roles. This thought has sparkled me to create a shadowbox on bonds and norms.
I started with applying a coat of Heavy White Gesso onto a wooden box. Then I arranged a figurine along with cogs, gears and other Mechanicals. I glued the composition thanks to 3D Gloss Gel which I also applied on the whole surface. When the shadowbox was slightly damp, I painted it with Mica Powders in rusty tones. Dry Powders stuck nicely to Gel and Gesso which had primed all the sleek surfaces.
Then I sprinkled the composition with Glass Glitters in muted colors. When they dried, I entwined the figurine with wires on which I strung a few Glass Beads in Zinc. I wanted to emphasize the bonds which make us so limited and blocked. As my finishing touch I decided to paint the frame with watered down Copper Crackle Texture Paste which I applied here and there with my finger.
I fixed a small wodden block as a pedestal which was also treated with a coat of Copper Paste and embellished with three Stars Brads in line.
I also decided to highlight the focal element with a pinch of dark Art Sugar and blue Glitters from the Caribbean Sea set.
I wish you a wonderful weekend without any boundaries :)
