I was fortunate enough to take a class from Michael DeMeng last week, entitled "Teeny Tiny Shriney". He is the best! He taught us all about mixing paints to age and integrate parts to make a cohesive shrine. Here's what I made in his class, out of one of the tiny-sized Altoids tins. The sides were built up with Aves Apoxie Sculpt clay, my new favorite art supply! This clay was also used to adhere heavy and/or oddly shaped items, such as the rusty bottle cap, the typewriter key, and the small finial at the bottom of the shrine.


Most of the parts I brought from home, but I purchased the awesome "floating shift" typewriter key and the Japanese doll hand there. My buddy cackle, who attended art camp with me, was nice enough to give me the eye, which really makes the piece.


I have been saving that perfect half-circle rusty bottle cap forever. I'm glad it finally found the home it deserves. Here's looking at you!


If you'd like to read about what else I made at "art camp", and all about the fantastic experience it was, click here.
