I am including an almost finished shrine, Order Out of Chaos. In the upcoming posts, I will include some more things I have been up too.
I created the substrate out of foam and wood; then began the mosaicing process. The flowers are embellishments I purchased and painted; then gilded (when I grouted, the abrasive grout took the gilding off. I will have to redo that.) There is a battery-lit tea light inside the little balcony, which I also sculpted and cut glass for. Polymer clay lines the inside of the niche. When I finish it, there will be some text around the balcony that says Order out of Chaos, Order out of Chaos...or, something like that. This is approximately 14" in height.
I wanted a little shrine to remind me that clarity comes with time and patience.
