Enjoying the Process

Jul 31, 2013

These projects are sit­ting on my work­table just wait­ing for me to com­plete. I real­ly enjoy cre­at­ing sev­er­al dif­fer­ent plas­ter items at once. This way I have sev­er­al dif­fer­ent projects to pick from and I don’t have to wait for plas­ter to dry. I just dig around, pick out the piece that inspires me that day and start cre­at­ing. It’s a love­ly way to start the day.

Plaster Heart Shadow Box

This heart is going to become a shad­ow box. It will be paint­ed, inked, stamped, waxed and filled with who knows what kin­da thrifty find.

Plaster Crown

This plas­ter crown is just the first of many I plan on cre­at­ing. Good­ness was this fun to make. I must admit I did fuss with it far too long but I want­ed it to have lots of rough, uneven tex­tured areas inside and out. As soon as I had it the way I want­ed I would some how smooth out an area. Now you know if I had want­ed the area smooth in the first place there would have been no way I would have ever been able to accom­plish that task. This crown is going to be paint­ed, antiqued and dressed up with rhine­stones and what­ev­er oth­er items I dis­cov­er in my stash of vin­tage finds.

DYI Plaster Canvas

This is a won­der­ful DIY plas­ter can­vas I cre­at­ed. I love it and will do this any­time I need a flat pan­eled type can­vas. The com­plet­ed can­vas is rough around the edges, has slight­ly raised cor­ners and by no means is it flat or smooth on the front or back. It is sit­ting on my work­table scream­ing at me to be used. I see a plas­ter boat with char­coal scal­lops and an inspir­ing quote adorn­ing the front of this can­vas. We will see how close to this idea the fin­ished piece comes.
