To antique or not to antique… part 4, sometimes it is the only answer

My friends Kelly and Tina have a fun blog. It is called KTdidclay http://ktdidclay.wordpress.com/ 

They share the space together, and with their great senses of humor and creative personalities, it is a fun place to visit and the eye candy is huge. I love being with them in person too! We laugh and get in trouble a lot.

It just so happens that Kelly did a little thing on white clay and then antiqued or washed or painted (whatever name you choose to call it) with acrylic paint and then wiped off the excess.

I thought “oh,  this is perfect for the tangent I am on”!

click on the picture and it will take you over there to ktdidclay and a giant picture.

You can even see the veining in the stem of the “weed”.

As in Kelly’s case “one man’s (or woman’s) “weed” is another ones art.”

Kelly says,

“I picked a few “weeds” which I thought had some interesting potential. I had created them by impressing the plants into the raw clay which leaves the texture behind.”

See, it just goes to show you something as simple as weeds and paint can add a whole new view to a plain piece of white clay. I can imagine whole little landscapes being made this way.

A work of art is born.
