My latest project for
Gauche Alchemy (GA) is
an altered tin.
All the details are on the
Gauche Alchemy blog
so this is a quick resume.
It started off like this
(the coffee helps me think).
After rubbing down with a sand block
to give a key I added texture to the lid by
using some GA Punchinella as a stencil and
smearing a layer of modelling paste over it.
It took a long time to dry..........
I then sprayed it with chalk and shimmer mist.
It was the little drinks umbrella
that inspired me for this piece.
Over this sprayed and textured surface
I stuck tissue paper,
little drinks umbrella,
gold sweet wrappers, sequins

This was fun to do!
