I had absolutely no plans on making a video this week but on Friday night I had a urge to make some aboriginal wall art and thought I may as well film it at the same time.
I decided to use chunky unglazed earthenware tiles as a substrate, these can double up as either a coaster or an earthenware canvas.

I have used Americana Acrylic paint and Adirondack Alcohol Inks for these pieces and finally sealed them with Americana Matte sealer for a durable waterproof finish.
Before the Video a quick catch up on the week, I have done a little more work on the altered guitar. I first sanded it, added a few rivets and applied a coat of Lamp Black Acrylic paint mixed with Decoart's paint adhesion medium to make sure it sticks and will not in any way scratch off.
I have also been sent some Ranger goodies to use in an upcoming magazine article for Crafts Beautiful and a few other projects, now at last I have more than 5 colours of Distress Ink..yippee!
And finally I spent the day yesterday running a workshop on Silver Clay Fingerprint Jewellery, here are some examples.
Right time for the video, have a great week.
The coasters are very designer chic... nice gifts too. posh and unique.ReplyDelete
the guitar is still very exciting (can i see hints of markings on the body?
and I am drooling at your ranger goodies. how awesome. !!!!!
lastly as a random comment. the authentication code word on my comment is "Splat" it appeals to me for some reason.
Thanks Louise, I tried using more contemporary colours on the tiles rather than the earth-tones I normally use for Aboriginal art.ReplyDelete
:) yes...you have better eyes than me! there are a few rough pencil marks on it, although it will all change knowing me!
Just stumbled on your blog Andy...how fab is your work, I am so impressed! I will really enjoy reading your old posts and looking out for new ones. I have also emailed you a question re "distressing" a wooden horseshoe, I do hope you can help.ReplyDelete
