Fairy in a Jar

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…

Raised Salt Fairy

Day 106 – Raised Salt Fairy

This is a new technique that I have just come across but it is actually really simple with effective results. Essentially, you draw your design with liquid glue (I used PVA), and then you coat the glue with normal table salt. Once I shook the excess salt off the page, I put droplets of watercolour paint on the salty outline and what you see above is the result!
