Palooza




I was at a workshop yesterday and made a palooza which was loads of fun. We used Crackle paints which are great, but are best left to air-dry. We had to apply the heat gun, which was a bit dodgy, caused the paint to lift a bit, but it could be squashed back with your finger and none the worse. All the objects are "found" items, and mine came from many sources - bits of old jewellery, part of a belt buckle from when I was slim enough to wear a belt, some pen nibs of my father's and a broken watch, shells, buttons, anything interesting.
