Faux frame simulating the plaster/gilt frames of days of yore -- it's actually a three dimensional element like the poppy, but built up on the mat -- there is a cut mat beneath the paper clay and plaster and paint and leaf and all.
Mixed media: card, acrylic, paper clay, plaster, ink, watercolour, oil paint, oil based size, aluminum leaf, fixative, soluvar gloss varnish, and one Canadian dime.
Small piece to test materials and processes for a later piece, DS0006, The Kitty and the Queen.
First appearance in DS series of 3d elements, use of found objects (dime), and metal leaf.
|The 3d aspect of the piece comes across better in video.|
