Finally Finished

This is the larger egg carton papier-mâché bowl a couple posts down. It's now laced with Gesso, used tea bags, Mod Podge and acrylic paints. Because someone commented below it looked "ancient", I painted something I hoped would look somewhat primitive. I'm not sure I like it a lot, but, oh well. It was a fun experiment that took some courage to show to all. Lol. I haven't done anything more with the smaller one yet. Please send suggestions, like don't do anything?!

Being "me" I was expecting bright colors - Ha ha, because that is what I would have done.
This definitely has a primitive "old" look to it.
I don't have any suggestions for the other one - sorry.

I LOVE it Barbara! the crow was the perfect motif for primitive so its perfect.
For your second piece-just do what feels right to you-your muse will help you hugs from the Ozarks

I too love this primitive 'olde' look. I can imagine a story of someone long ago making such a bowl, perhaps to put their left over threads in, or to hold shells or even dried petals.

What a great vessel. I love the edges. I'm not familiar with this process. I'm going to enjoy reading your past posts and finding out more about your work.

Thanks for sharing.

Ha! I never say anything bird that I didn't like! You are right, that crow suits a primitive look. I'm sure your muse will guide you on painting the second one.

Oh my gosh! This is just perfect!!! You have captured primitive in all aspects here-let me say-this is a wonderful piece. I truly think you should pursue this art form-I can tell you are unsure about it-but I LOVELOVE LOVE it.

I really like this! And once again we're on the same wavelength--I've been thinking/writing a lot about cave paintings lately. :)
