So, with art, there are times when you can make *huge* mistakes, and yet still fix them with a bit of creativity. And this project is one of those.. :)
A long while back – before we moved here over a year ago – I started a project by painting a canvas pale green. I was intending to stick sequins to it and maybe make a butterfly out of it. Then we were moving, so I packed the canvas away. It was the first thing that jumped out at me when I opened the art box.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it now, but I still had sequins and I also had the stencil from this art project which I gave to my nephew for Christmas a long time ago. And what an absolutely kick butt painting that turned out to be (no, we didn’t add more dots, I just sealed it as you see it there in that post).
So I thought I would try sticking sequins to the Denkyem stencil shape. Unfortunately, glue and sequins do not seem to mix and they turned out not shiny. Oh NOES! What to do?
Use modelling paste to build up the canvas, and then paint over it in black, I think. And then dry brush in some silver or gold over the top.
As you can see I am in the middle of this project, I may layer it up a bit more yet. Because you can still the the sequins at the moment.
It’s been a hellish couple of days for me and I need to seek refuge in the Art. ;) Peace Out!
