My share today is this simple assemblage shadowbox made using handmade clay pieces, resin embellishment and paint. I found this resin bicycle years ago and thought it would be a good assemblage or canvas mixed media embellishment one day. I made the tree out wire and covered it with Makin's Clay. I know the tree feels that it should have leaves, for some reason I did not want leaves, lol! Below is high level tutorial.
So I started by painting my little 5x5 shadowbox with white gesso,
then painted it with blue acrylic paint.
Painted some flowers, bushes, grass and clouds with acrylic paint.
I made the tree by wire wrapping 18 gauge aluminum wire together,
then covered it with Makin's Clay. Allowed the clay to dry for a day.
Painted the tree and bike with white gesso. Ready to be painted.
See my post on wire tree, where I explain how to make wire trees.
Only difference is that the trees in the post were not altered or painted.
Unlike this tree that I covered with clay and painted.
I painted the tree with brown acrylic paint.
I painted with bicycle red, brown, metallic silver
and black acrylic paint.
I glued the tree with a strong adhesive, E-6000.
Then glued the bike onto the tree and ground.
