This maybe a different take on the definition of "ugly", but it is my interpretation.
My hubby gave me this months ago, and told me to make something with it. It's been waiting for the right inspiration, and this is it before.
A full metal ammo can that held .45 ACP bullets. (Now that to me is ugly since I hate guns.)
Mission to mosaic and make it beautiful.
Some pictures of the WIP.
The inside is where I wanted to add something different. First it was painted an irredescent pink, then glitter was placed about an inch deep on the bottom and resin poured to seal it. Then I painted "Try to see beauty in all things", and added the ceramic butterfly.
Once the whole piece was mosaiced, I then painted excess green areas and sealed the whole thing with 2 coats of Polycrylic. Here are the finished pictures.

Thanks for checking it out!
**PS - Funny side not...when my hubby saw what I was doing he replied: "No, it's an ammo can. You don't put flowers and pink on an ammo can."
