Speaking of Buddha…

 I have been working on this for awhile. I love little shrines and I have a set of stamps that cut them out of the clay. Yesterday my sisterfriend Bella Sinclair http://bellasinclair.blogspot.com/ mentioned that the last face cab I did had a Buddha face. I have always wanted a segue way like that and there it was. So, today speaking of Buddha… here it is.



I am still working on a way to hang this piece. It is meant to be a wall shrine.

Textured foil background mounted on a 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ wood panel. The foil is painted with Super Russet Lumiere acrylic paint.

The shrine itself is made from Gold, Copper, and Verdigris Cernit that is stamped with Pearl-ex ink in Black and Copper.

There are Copper metal leaves hand cut and tooled with small flowers from Black and Opaque White Cernit, Copper metal beads, and Flowers that are made in various shades of black white copper gold and brown Cernit. I have also added triangular silver filigree metal pieces and a couple of different sizes of vintage swarovski crystal flat back stones. The hinges on the shrine doors are 20 gauge copper handmade jump rings.

I know now, by doing the work,+ some of things I will do differently with the next shrine. It was fun to experiment and to find the things that worked and that didn’t. I may have to make a couple more of these.

Uh oh, another tangent??
