Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Getting Plastered on a regular basis

Another couple of casts from Sir Skinners Outcasts course I have been doing for the last few weeks - totally addicted!
This one was going to be a paperweight but turned into a tealight holder - was hoping for a nice greasy looking industrial bit and I am happy with the results

This is a wall plaque - using a copper verdigris effect that I learnt from Andy's Timeworn course (yep I wholeheartedly recommend peeps doing all his courses!)

Writing this post whilst waiting for a workman to turn up, itching to get back into my craftroom but I cant really answer the door covered in plaster can I?? Hurry up Mr Man!

  6. Oh my goodness . . . I am in awe over your art. My favorite, and I might say, that is a very hard thing, to pick a favorite . . . is the magnifying-glass angel. I don't even know what I'm looking at . . . your technique is totally new to me, but I LOVE IT !!!
