So what do with them?
I also found in a drawer a couple of 'paper thingies' I'd made a few years ago - not sure what you call them, so I am calling them P.I.Ms - 'paper in mould', as that was how they were made. Got some old chocolate moulds which were a nightmare to get chocolate out of, so I pressed layers of damp cheap loo roll in and when they dried they came out of mould really easily.
So I've started to cover one of the containers with the cheap paper and stick it on using Klear floor polish. If you've seen previous posts you will see I'm enjoying trying to find things to do with it.
I intend to eventually cover the container with Gesso but at the top and bottom where the curved awkward looking areas are, will see if alcohol ink works. Found a nice paper butterfly made previously and wondered if this would stick on too.
Next time I make some of these P.I.Ms I will think it through more and fill it better so its flatter at back. This butterfly I trimmed and coated inside with Klear and its made it quite stiff; I thought soaking it with the Klear might have made it loose it definition, but it hasn't. It seems to have stuck onto the main body too. Probably need to add some more paper to try and loose the hard edges of butterfly.
Hoping to finish it over the weekend.
