Killed Catalogue

Finally my Killed Catalogue has had some work done on it.
Late last year Maggie Grey asked us to bury an old catalogue and leave it to the elements to see what happened.
After several months we were to resurrect it and then create a piece of art.
6 months later here is my piece (can't rush into these things can I).
Firstly I applied Gesso then Quink ink and some Terra Cotta Adirondack colour wash spray.
Then I used 3 different Moon Shadow Mist sprays -Jolly Roger red- Buccaneer Bay blue and Violaceous violet.
I also used some Metallic rub-ons and some Goldfinger in colour green gold.
The pieces that I have embedded are all made from paper clay.





A close up of the top half of the page.
If you click on it you can see the great texture that has been created.




I'm not sure what I think of it really.

I know just what I think of it....it's fantastic!! It has a mystical look, maybe it's from a fairy tale. Love the face peeking out and the colors are soft and dreamy. Who knew a catalogue could look so good!!

I know that feeling Doreen, but I think your catalogue is looking great. Love the colours and the textures, and the way you have blended your paper casts into the surface.

Doreen, it looks like an archaelogical find , unearthed after centuries. I particularly love the little face, I'm quite into those at the moment after buying myself a mold at the Craft Show. I used plaster of paris for mine, might have to look for some paper clay at the next Craft Show in June I think.
Hooroo,
Christine.

This came from a catalog?? Wow!!! You did an absolutely fantastic job Doreen!!! I especially love the face.

Well, it was certainly worth the wait, I love it, especially the soft tones in the colours. My catalogue is still waiting for further attention - maybe in another couple of months! As you said, you can't hurry these things. cheers, Robin
