This wooden model reminds me of Posh Spice for some reason. Every day that I am in my studio I change it's pose. I know it is childish, but it gets manoeuvred into some very weird positions and it really makes me smile!
Today it is 'modelling' an experimental piece of metal work I did today. It took me hours and nearly ended up in the bin on several occasions!
On the Time for Crafting site Sara has featured metal work in her latest magazine, so I thought I would try out different ways of using it.
I tried painting it red with alcohol inks, but couldn't get a nice finish. Then I tried highlighting just the roses and wording - but easier said than done.
So I ended up cleaning it all off, 'hammering' with a pointy thing from the garage, painted it black, then sanded it off.
