This is pretty much all made from Finnabair products and the substrates are mostly calico craft parts leftovers after removing the laser cut shapes
So I’m going to just add a few photos of recent projects that I’ve forgotten to blog before now.
Well… it is the last ever SanDee & Amelie’s steampunk challenge. I wanted to do something specifically for the challenge as I’ve enjoyed visiting the blog.
Thank you to all of the design team who have inspired us over the years.
So here it is. My last entry. I’ve made a rusty 12 x 12 canvas using resin cast in moulds, rust pastes, patina waxes, metallique paint, sparks, stencils etc.
The theme over on Art Daily Cafe this month is “Black luxury” so I have altered this big bottle using mostly black gesso and jet jewel paste. It’s a variation on Finnabair’s “moonshine” bottle class. Bottles and tins are my favourite things to alter.
That’s the “black part taken care of but what is my take on luxury?
I am unwaged long term disabled and funds are super tight ALL the time. For me, getting new art supplies is a luxury. Extra luxury when it’s Finnabair metallique or sparks. So the whole thing represents luxury. But as an addition, every time I use the “gold chest” sparks on anything, the deep dark rich tone of it just screams opulence to me. Of course metallique paints, glitter and iridescence don’t really show well in photos but in real life, the colours are so pretty when you move the bottle in the light.
