i went to chicago yesterday...the day itself was hell, but i did manage to get to the art muesuem.
anyway, while i was there, they had a display on old victorian furniture and sliver and stuff. i myself am not really a fan of furniture, but i went anyway. i was looking at a sign and it said something about these little pieces of paper that victorian people used to cover blemishes on thier face. it said the thin paper was shaped like stars and such. this is where the phrase 'starry eyed' came from because two little stars in the corners of the eyes symbolized passion. or something like that. i thought it would be cool, so i made some. theyre on both sides of my face, but im just showing one side, because *suprise* both sides look the same!
i think the regular computer paper that i used was too thick. i think i will try this with tissue paper. the stars are attached to my face with rubber cement. it actually works pretty well, and comes off nicely. o, and i colored over the stars with sliver reflective sharpie.
