Don’t breathe air ,breathe life
By Wendy Aspinall
Sardines ArtFoamies by Red Tin Roof
Drill and wire 18 gauge
I found fun quotation “Don’t breathe air , breathe life” and as fish don’t breathe air but are full of life I wanted to incorporate two things together.
I also love Red tin roofs sardine stamps. They are really fun and quirky.
So please,enjoy my Plaque project and I hope you’ll try this yourselves.
Roll out paper clay and using the backside of the Art Foamie as a template cut out four fish.
Don’t worry if the edges are rough. I sanded them when dry
Press into the clay with the Art Foamie with the sides with the details.
Let dry on sheet of paper towel. This may take a few days.
Turn over half way though so the fish stay straight.
When completely dry, Sand off any rough edges until smooth. Be careful, the fish are fragile. add a coat of white gesso
Paint each fish a different color but add touches of the other colors to highlight the texture.
Add the brown and then copper. Paint in eyes with white and black acrylic.
Paint the edge of the wood plague in the same brown Acrylic, distressed the edges with the sandpaper.
Cut scrapbook to cover the back and front of the plaque.
Drill two holes for wire hanger.
Glue on the fish and quote.
