I am working on some Day of the Dead assemblages to submit to a juried art show next week. I thought I'd show my works in progress.
I am going to make two skulls, one woman/one man, decorated with yarn. I will show you later what I do with the frosting dye that is in the jar.
Oh, and I thought I'd add some buttons. I think I have a few around here somewhere.
I spray painted my skulls in case there are any gaps in the yarn that I put on them.
Here is the third piece I am working on. I am going to combine these items inside of the box. I love this Milagros paper, it is uber-fantastic. Poor George Washington has no idea what is going to happen.
I had to take out the upper interior shelf. This was a bigger pain than I
thought it would be as it was slotted into the side of the cabinet. I
used my dremel to help cut
through the shelf and then I was able to pull out it out. I
am currently contemplating painting the exterior of the box red.
