I love this! And I'm intrigued and impressed by your painting technique. How did you get that marbleized effect? The only way I can imagine is by loading a fan brush with paint and very lightly skimming it over the surface. But I think there's more to it than that! I hope you'll share the secret.
I can see that the chamber itself was a die-cut kit of some sort, and obviously it can't have ever made anything but a fairy wish chamber, but what did the manufacturer call it? So clever of you to have spotted its real purpose!
And finally one last question: how tiny is it? I just realized I have no idea of the scale of what I'm looking at. (More fairy magic at work, I suspect.)
Thank you so much for the compliments. Let me say 1st and for most I am no painter. I grabbed a few colors I liked, sat down at the table and started painting...no rhyme or reason. Just layering & mixing layers as I went along. Used a little paint brush I had laying around and q-tips to blend.
The chamber is actually a 3D die-cut (Creatology) telephone booth puzzle that I purchased for $1.00.
I would like to say its probably about 5 to 7 inches high before being glued it to a little wooden base.
