You may remember my mermaid bowl I completed a couple of weeks ago.
Well I loved the idea of working in 3D and creating little 'objects of desire' which I could collage. The bamboo bowl was bought plain and then covered in paper and paint. Over Christmas I kept a lot of packaging I would normally have thrown away into to the re-cycle bin , I really wanted to use an object which would otherwise be discarded; Plastic seemed the right choice as I had loads of it..but....
.......can you collage Plastic???
I thought I would find out.....
I first of all covered a clean empty plastic pate container in tissue paper and PVA glue making a base for paint. It also created an organic crinkly texture.
I then cut a few little Dragonfly from more waste plastic packaging.
I used violet acrylic to cover the tissue paper base.
|I then went over the black body in textured silver paint|
|small beads were used for the eyes|
|So YES!! it is possible to collage plastic and make something out of nothing!|
Also for the first time WOYWW ( what's on your work desk wednesday)
