It is already the first of April and time for another mixed media/altered art challenge at Altered Eclectics.
I decided to altered a pottery box that I was given years ago.
This is the box I started with.
This is my box when I completed altering it.
To created my altered box I first painted my box with black gesso, then to parts sections of the box I added crackling paste. I then used dye inks and acrylic paints in yellow, green and aqua blue to add colour to the box.
To complete my box I added some roses that I had painted in the colors of my project. The roses were ceramic and in their previous life they were decorations on shower hooks. I had to get the help of my husband to take the roses off of the hooks but it was worth it. I got a set of 20 hooks at a thrift store for $1.00 which has given me 17 left over to use on future projects.
This is another view.
