Rusted Bust

Okay so I am just doing a quick pic as part of Wednesdays Workshop series that I will post each Wednesday.

I had a drawing class this morning and it’s my birthday so of course I have planned way too much to do in one afternoon – but I wanted to show you what I am working on in my workshop today.

I have begun to play with PRIMA’s Patina Effect Pastes with some of my paper mache’ projects that I am designing and am thinking about teaching in 2018. — I am in love with how quickly these little pastes create such a great patina effect or rust effect. I just use my fingers (shocker I know) and rub it/spread it/spackel it on. Check it out.

I decided to cut this in half and put on one of my cradle boards that I use with my gear girls. I am still playing with it …

but I am not mad at this at all!!! I will put a door in the opening I think and make a little shrine in it. It might work!!

Whatcha think???

You can leave any comments or suggestions you think would work. Also if you subscribe / follow my website you will be sent an email whenever I post something. Who knows I could discover the fountain or youth — or a good stain remover — you don’t want to miss that!!!

Check back Friday for the “rest of the stories of the Hawaii not Mexico trip, the art journal pages I created while there and the other hazards I created while on the mudding/ATV tour.

Thanks for taking the time to check in and check it out.

Remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be worth it. Time to eat some birthday cake and lie about my age!!! Gotta go. Mr. Is here and we are off to dinner.

I am a mixed media artist. An art journal gypsy who finds beauty in the perfectly imperfect (even before it was cool)!! I choose to cheerfully create imperfect art while traveling and at my studio in Idaho when I'm not.
