Another way today to use those fabulous paints: on papier maché. Neil has altered a little box/book and I think the effect he got on there is just perfect, don't you think?
Here's how Neil made it....
Not sure if anyone is familiar with the film "The Legend of the Guardians" but it's full of owls and though the story is pretty predictable the film is visually stunning.
This was my inspiration for this week's piece. I took one of the paper mache book boxes and used pebeo paints to do the outside covers in silver and blue It dries really shiny (And slowly so patience is needed; though that may have been the weather and a thick layer too!)
I stamped the owl onto white shrink plastic using stazon and cut out and shrank with the heat gun.
The paint does give really interesting results though I have to say that the more I worked it the less the patterned stayed so I'll have to play some more to see what works best for me (what a hard life I have!)
Inside I painted black and the lovely old script was stamped in silver .
I attached the decorative metal "battle guard" inside. Waiting to be passed down from the elder Guardian to the next, younger one...
