Yay, I have something to show, something I've had much fun with; it's 3 'old painted' portraits, but not just any kind.
because a few weeks ago when I couldn't yet do the kind of thing needed for some other things I had been making, I was thinking of antique paintings that I want for my Oldtique-Store-to-be and that it would be nice to add something to that. That led to the idea to give that antique art a personal touch and that's how I got to making: 'paintings' of nobly ladies with my own face in them! Well, it doesn't get any more personal than that I guess :D . I found some nice ones online that I modified with my face and it's printed on my beloved cotton twill fabricsheets, I just love that stuff!
|you can't see it well or at all, but I've 'varnished' them with mod podge and adding layers in which I tried to add a bit of the brushstrokes|
|the label on the right is for reference, so it's always clear what the real painting is or who it's from and who's face is in it! :D|
below are the paintings in their normal state, as they were made by the painters for their clients. I wonder what they'd say if they could see what I've done to them ;)
