Love for Rust - Finnabair Creative Team

This week starts off with some really exciting news - Finnabair reveals her new products! If you are in mixed media, you are going to love this release!

I love to give a new life to discarded objects and reshape broken pieces into something interesting. This time I used crushed china figurines that I put together and a bottle cap along with a pair of wings.
The best glue I can recommend is 3D Gel which holds everything perfectly. To fill the blank areas between all the elements I worked with Sculpture Medium. To even the surface I covered the whole figurine with Black Gesso and added a pinch of Art Stones at the base.

House and Its Head


This family was rather odd... a Victorian patriarch, his dominated wife, pristine daughters, a lukewarm nephew and their intrusive two-faced relatives. Their elegant house was a rather dishororable and claustrophobic place where every small talk was like a battle in the guise of respect and politeness.

I wish you relaxing and comforting or even a bit Victorian weekend!
