Chain Bodice



























This is my submission for the 'wet' theme on the 'How Dare You Design Team. I have used tissue paper that was sprayed with water and then painted onto in rich golden paint colours that was then spritzed again with more water and then blotted with papertowel. Embossed with Burgandy, embellished with Golden Black Mica Flakes, Golden Garnet Gel Medium and antique gold rub on's. Embellished with some beads around the waist and the metal heart on both sides. This stand is used to hold altered mini projects that I have made. The stand was once a garish pink with scrolls stamped on it and was found at a thrifty market for 10 cents. Definitely now loved and used, former life destined for the rubbish dump.
