Bejeweled Creative Paperclay® Painting
I have been working on a series of 48" x 48" paintings using Creative Paperclay® as part of my narrative. This piece is in its early stages and is just blocked in at this point. I loved combining the old with new in my work so I started with a traditional pose from the 1500's combined with highly decorated clay hearts.
Amazing Molding Putty
Soft gel gloss
While this was drying I gathered beads, found objects and E6000 glue.
The dried hearts were attached to my painting with soft gel gloss. BTW I work on wood panels.
At a thrift door the last week, I found large bags of broken jewelry and odds and ends for a cheap price and I didn't pick them up. When I went back they were gone. Still kicking myself.
This piece has faux pearls from the 30's, old bracelet and small charm.
baroque heart in this body that keeps trying to come out. Decorated with faux pearl, salt water pears, micro beads and vintage broach.
The finished piece will be posted on my facebook page when done - https://www.facebook.com/darleneoliviamcelroy
Dream in Color and throw nothing out.
