|Today I do something new.|
|Ingredients (clockwise); PVA glue, patterns, pattern sleeve, scissors, brush, some kind of lamp.|
|Wet, extremely fragile, hollow sphere of paper and PVA – should have hung it up before starting.|
|First layer, getting the hang of it now.|
|Sewing break! Added another tick.|
|After using up one WHOLE pattern already|
|The second pattern has many new pictures – mostly arrows and cutting scissors|
|Don’t follow the suggestions of the cutting scissors! All finished with an extra layer of PVA glue to make it tight as a drum.|
|Relax, have some tea.
At the end of this, I’m not sure if I’ve just done a decoupage. The Decoupage Guild Australia site has things that are so much more… polished and other sites featuring how-to’s are doing… things that are different, I just don’t know if I’m doing it right. Is there a difference between decoupage and collage, or is it all just glueing shit to other shit?
I think the sphere will look very nice in my designated space for theGRID anyway. It’ll be in a hybrid arts collective (when it opens, in _____________), so I think that will fit right in.
