Cristin's amazing and weird art

Hello friends!

After spending my morning creating amazing little pieces with plaster and molds (some homemade, some store bought) I was feeling really inspired to create. I grabbed a small canvas and set to work without really a plan of what the final result should be.

First, I used an Artistceller Blocks Series Stencil (Tiles) with DecoArt Media Mister in Carbon Black. Since the canvas is so thick, I thought it would be fun to add some of that stencil design on the sides, too.

Next, I used an Artistcellar Labyrinth Series Stencil (Crete) with Golden Coarse Molding Paste. 

From there, I glued my plaster pieces on, and started building color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in - Partridge in a Pear Tree, True Blood, Lava, and Iron.

I also used a palette knife and some of Finnabair's Rust paste for extra texture.

Then, to finish the whole thing off, I poured Liquitex Pouring Medium on top and let it dry. This creates a super glossy, almost resin-like effect except it's way less sticky, messy and smelly. (Hooray!)

I like to make weird art. Art that makes me think. Art that makes people uncomfortable. 

I call this one D - I - S - C - O - N - N - E - C - T, and I'm still deciphering it's message myself.

Wow… this little piece is weird, but quite wonderful. It’s messy without being gory. It’s sad without being morose. Despite it’s dark, earthy and muted colors it’s seems kind of hopeful. Almost like a rebirth of sorts. Very, very cool and interesting. I’m inspired by that modeling paste. I’ve got to go experiment now. Thank you.
