Well it's a dull, grey day here and so my photos are bit shadowy - appropriate as I'm still working on the 'Shadow Dance' shrine for the ARC! Sorry about the quality of this, but I hope you get some idea of what it will look like inside an exploding box!
Here is the outside of the exploding box. I'm planning to crackle glaze those black sections.
Here is the canvas I did waiting to have some braid attached - not sure if this is the right shade - any ideas?
This might seem rather bewildering, but for the ARC I decided on a shrine within a shrine, if you see what I mean. I kept thinking of so many new elements to add that a mini-shrine was not large enough, so I thought - what about a house in a box? There so many sections to these Victorian Exploding Boxes from Retro Cafe Art Gallery - just like the intricate descriptions and layers of Angela Carter's novel. It's fun working on this, but I can see it's going to take me ages. I am really experimenting with the effects of Fresco Finish paints too, trying to go for a Victorian look. Maybe I'll have to join the challenge next month instead!!!
Well, have a great day everyone and thank you for sharing what's on your work tables this Wednesday; I can't wait to see.
