We are still in limbo, our lives have become endless numbers of days staying in place. I don’t know about you but my little studio has become my happy place. As I don’t have anywhere to rush
And this canvas is one of those ideas, inspired by the new Camafeos in the R&A store and the French Monarch Louis XIV or Le Roi Soleil, the Sun King. He ruled for 75 years and he was a dreamer like me, he envisioned the Palace of Versailles.
I started my project by gluing on the Medium and small sized Helios II wood shaped suns onto a 4 inch squared canvas.
Then added the round Roman headed cameo.
This was left to dry and then painted with the Verday paint in copper.
Next I added some paper clay Medallions, some chipboard stars and an Eiffel tower and some flower pics. Then everything got another coat of the copper verday paint. When dry, I sprayed it completely with Patina Solution.
Lastly I added copper wax to bring out some of the details on the Cameo and Medallions.
Thank you for your time and I hope this inspires you to find your happy place and dream big. Have fun and make art. And above all stay healthy and well. Hugs Wendy.
