Another day, another play. Here's the result of a days play. Didn't know where I was going until I got there, I just knew I wanted to use turquoise... trying to get away from my normal brown/copper and get out of my personal box. Unfortunately it was hard to photograph because I couldn't use flash as it reflected onto the metal and the consequence of this was that it looks 'bluer' than it really is. It's a Key Box that I picked up in a bargain bucket that just needed to be altered!
The pelmet at the top has been covered with aluminium tape but before sticking it on I stuck some punched out shapes and then burnished over the top which makes it look like they are embossed into the metal.. it's a very effective technique courtesy of Tim Holtz (though I'm sure he didn't think it up originally!!)
The Central bit is proper aluminum, stamped/embossed/painted. and then a couple of charms and a pair of wings later it was finished. This one is going into my stock to hopefully sell!!
