Katherine's Dabblings

Monday, 2 March 2009

On Docrafts, Nicks set an altered art challenge and that was to alter a tin. I decided on a tuna tin and I wanted to use the tombstone moulds I'd recently bought. I'd also seen in a book a Day of the Dead Angel made out of tin and I wanted to have a go. That was after I couldn't get hold of the right size skeleton for love nor money!

Papered the inside of the tin, made the shelves, books and bible. Put soap in the little bowl and a Day of the Dead piccy in the frame and that was the interior sorted. Outer painted and an unamable subastance was used for moss. Lol!

Decided in the end that I prefer it without the Angel but she can always go back on if she fancies a change of abode.
