Week 51 Compilation Board!
357 days down, 8 days to go!!!
Day 355 – Fairy in a Jar
Created by cutting a silhouette of a fairy out of black paper and sticking it on the inside of the jar.
I then stuck one layer of white tissue paper using PVA glue, added some fairy dust and pearlescent paint before lighting a candle on the inside for the glow…
Day 265 – Pumpkin Fairy
Carved out of a pumpkin using a vegetable knife. I used the smallest knife I could find, but I think I could have got a lot more detail if I had a more narrow blade (and more time!)
Day 237 – Painted Jar Fairy
I started by painting the inside of a clean pickle jar with acrylic paints in various shades of blue. I mixed the colours as I painted.
I then drew a silhouette of a fairy with a black permanent marker on the outside of the jar.
In my head, I thought putting a lit candle inside would make the silhouette shine through. This didn’t work. I therefore painted on top of the black permanent marker with white acrylic paint. I tried dabbing the brush to add a bit of texture.
