I already have this awesome piece hanging on my wall so the idea was to do something along the same lines.
|No, I didn't steal this from my sister. Why would you ask that?|
See for my Christmas present my sister's fiance and I got together to make some negative space art. We used little packets of serrated washers from home depot so if you look close the little circles actually appear to be gears.
You just arrange the 'gears' on the canvas in an interesting pattern and then spray paint over them.
They were a ton of fun to make.
Of course, I tried to get too fancy with mine, and it didn't actually turn out.
That canvas is still actually in my closet, and I intend to apologize to it someday and give it another go.
But we're talking about my new art piece now so I should probably roll that baby out.
|please hold your applause until the end of the program|
Still, unpredictability is part of the entire point of a medium like this.
|And my friend wanted to melt these out. For Shame!|
I even love how the garbage bag I placed underneath the piece while I was blow drying got bunched up so there are these little ridges a half inch above the bottom of the piece
If you're thinking about trying this I say go for it! It really was the most fun I've had in a while
Now I just have to find somewhere to hang the darn thing.
My next post will show how I did the gears themselves. It was drawn out and overcomplicated so I feel like you should all appreciate that as well.
