I loved working on this box. The Iced Enamels has always been one of my favorite materials to use. Endless possibilities! I love how the Ice Resin makes it look like it just came out of the sea!

#RAExplorethePossibilities This is my first submission for the challenge. I used the Relics and Artifacts face, Ice Enamels on the box as well as Iced Resin. "King Neptune's Treasure" I do have another piece that I am working on, but it's not finished yet!:)

I love the different effect you get when you melt silver onto copper. It sort of looks like a moonscape! I fold formed this piece of copper first, then hit it with the torch! I created the neckace out of steel wire ( my new favorite material to work with, although my hands get reaaally dirty after) forming, then smashing it with a hammer. The smashing part was very therapeutic;) I made the necklace rather long, but I sort of like it that way. Enjoy! Let me know what you think!

An old rusty paint brush I had found deep in the woods. As soon as I saw it, I knew what I wanted to create.
I used a resin piece from Relics and Artifacts, (which I altered) some moss covered twigs, some acorn hats and cheese cloth. Iced Enamels was used on the acorn hats, and I dyed a bit of cheese cloth with some walnut crystals for his hat. The handle of the brush I painted with burnt sienna acrylic paint, then went over it with white crackle medium. As you can see from the before picture, most of the mossy effect was already done for me by Mother Nature.
I hope you enjoyed this little altered brush, please leave me comments below and let me know what you all think!
