I found this really awesome little tripod bowl while I was out and about at the thrift shops and one thing popped into my mind
That's right- a cauldron. This little dish reminded me of a little cauldron and I couldn't wait to get started on it.
The technique I chose for this one was to decoupage some metallic grey tissue paper onto the exterior of the bowl using Modge Podge (crafting gift of the Gods!) to give it a 'cast metal' look. This method was not only very cost effective but also gives me the option to change my mind and use a different technique later if I choose to. Since I didn't use a separate sealer, but instead just applied another layer of Modge Podge to the outside to give it a shinier look so the whole thing can come off after washing it with some water. I really wanted to have the option to change it because there are so many different techniques I could do with this one type of projects that I just know one I'm going to get the itch to do at least one other at some point.
I currently have a pretty big and totally awesome project in the works that I'll be telling you all about in the next couple of weeks (I am super excited) and I can't wait to show you how my 'traveling art trunk' suitcase has turned out!
