DEMO FUN...POPPY PAPER CASTS...

One of three "windows" of a poppy paper cast that I will be demonstrating tomorrow evening at Clements Center in Lakewood for Mountainside Art Guild.  This "pane" of the window is still in process, but you get the point, hopefully!  I have been playing around with different ways to use my paper casts, and have found a fun way...These are on 300lb watercolor paper that has been "texturized" a bit with modeling paste, stamped with a couple of stamps...one of which I made; the poppy leaf (see below), painted and embellished with bits of paint and ephemera...and voila...Poppy Paper Cast matted and under glass!!  It was FUN DOINS in my studio these past few days!
The poppy leaf stamp was made with fun foam...so easy and so convenient to stop and draw what you need, the SIZE and shape you need...make it and stamp it!!  It sits beside a paper cast poppy from the side that hasn't been embellished yet...Stay tuned for the finished product!

I've been planting in pots on my deck...and these little guys broke off...but, as you KNOW we artists never take something beautiful for granted...we photograph them...you NEVER KNOW when we may want to paint something...
HAPPY CREATING!

Love your poppies but not quite sure what you mean my paper casts? Will read more in your blog.

Thanks Nancy...I developed a way of making molds for paper casts...that is the poppy you see...Instead of pressing them into a mold I make my own molds from brass...It was part of the workshop I made for Cloth Paper Scissors last year...:) THIS would be a great workshop!! FUN DOINS!
