We have another great challenge over at Creative Artiste this month and as always the theme is anything goes as long as it is mixed media/altered art.
For my project this month I decided to alter this fantastic wine holder that I found at a thrift store.
My picture of the original wine holder does not do it justice. The container is solid wood, has a leather and wood handle and a metal insert in the bottom that allows the bottles to slant outwards.
To create my project I sand papered the box and I decided on my design, added squares of cardboard to the base of the wine box and added a coating of gesso to the whole of the project.
My next step was to create the design and add my findings.
I painted the findings with gesso to then sprayed the project with an assortment of spray paints. Once I was satisfied with the look of the sprays and colour combinations I added some white gesso to high some areas along with green and purple Pentart wax paste.
Here are some closer views
