ALTERED ANGEL - Whisk

Here is altered Angel, number 2.



This was very difficult to photograph, because of the glare on the forks, but gives you a reasonable idea of the colouring.

Once again she is mounted on canvas, 7..5" x 5".

She consists of 2 cake forks, which i've stained with red and green alcohol inks, then embossed with verdigre powder. and hung silver feathers from, stampedover with turquoise ink.

The main body is a miniature whisk, which is a magnet really. On top of the whisk i have added a buckle and adorned with brass caps with gold beads on top.

The legs are silver screws which i've rubbed on gold leaf, and stamped once again with the turquoise ink.
The miniature domino, is inked with green stazon, and embossed with verdigre again.

The face is handmade from air dry clay, and the crown is heavy metal, and was donated to me by my dear friend Tanya, over in the USA>=.

I have another angel finished as well as an altered bottle, but the batteries died in my camera yesterday, and what with the move i can't find the bloomin battery charger, but hopefully will be able to take some photos today. LOL

Everything is falling into place, but i am sooooo unsure about my stuff. The gallery owner insisted on me doing Altered Art, even though he hasn't got a clue what it is about. Got a feeling it will not be his cup of tea.
My next two projects are a fairy in a jar, and a lovely shaped coffee jar is going to be a doll.
Next week will have to be entirely devoted to painting, so i'm not sure if i will have time to blog.

What's not to like? It's abfab - I'm sure he'll love it - even if he doesn't know what 'altered art' is - he soon will! Just adore your jigsaw piece too. It's going to be a fab exhibition - sounds as though you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now too. Good luck with it all Margaret x
