So, I have a concept for a display case that has the theme of Save the Earth and other such green-ness.
It's a peacock, in this position:
,with his tail spread fully outwards. In the middle of this tail is an earth model, better contrasted from the rest of the green and blue by some dark shading. At the bottom, there's some art nouveau lettering that reads "Keep it Well" I'm open to changing the lettering, the placing of the words, and the slogan itself.
I'm leaning towards relief sculpture, keeping in mind that this has to be taken in and out of a relatively small display case... though it will be by itself.
My question is about materials: I want to use only recycled materials for this. It's not just me working on this, and not everybody has artistic ability/experience. I'm pretty much alone in that sense. We're already collecting bottlecaps (from plastic bottles) and my friend and I have nice collections of beer bottle caps that we could probably dig into... there's scrap wood and bottles themselves as well... I'm not entirely sure even about how to start!
