So while working on these ATC's a thought ran over and over in my mind...ATC's have been around for a very long time and I have always loved creating them...but I dont want mine to look like the ATC's of the past...and I dont want mine to look like any that are out now...that almost controlling creative feeling shouts out..."I wanted to offer something new"...perhaps a new texture,or a new thickness...or maybe a new medium...sky's the limit right?
and always,always, think outside the box.
I painted the Retro Cafe frames in Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paint and let it dry completely.
Next I glued on the collage sheet to the back and sealed the image three times
I mixed up two equal parts of Clear Cast and added it to the center and to the frame
I then dropped in some metal watch gears and let the resin cure 24hrs.
Next I added a rub-on word
and mounted the frame to a chipboard blank ATC board for added thickness
I painted the light bulb black with a sharpie and glued the pieces together
Glued the bulb in place and added one final layer of resin along with confetti stars.
Covered the sides in black Dresden Trim.
