1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / T-Rex vs Octopus Upcycled Painting on: May 20, 2012 02:26:53 PM
I had found one of those cheap, printed photos on a wooden base at goodwill sometime ago and thought that it could use some sprucing up. I am honestly obsessed with the idea of a t-rex vs an octopus. I'm sorry for not having a before picture... Just imagine the piece without the destruction and chaos! The picture itself was around $3.00 and the paint is Folk Art acrylic paint. Smiley



Here are some detail shots -



I used a wet brush to run the ink on the original picture to make it look a bit more worn. Overall, I was really pleased with the effect.





C & C is definitely welcome! Smiley
