Thanks ysemeine! Yeah, I used an old table runner that I got in a box of fabric from a yard sale. It was stained with wine and whatnot and unuseable....at the time, but I knew I would have a use for it.
I draped the runner over the paper and then sprayed it with an old rattle can of white spray paint. Here's a pic of it

After that, I used a diluted red ink to colour it, then added some shadows with the airbrush.
I swear, this new tool to my arsenal has opened up alot of options for my work.
If you look at the later pics from the one I posted, you can see the differance.

Though it's not entirely finished, I just had to post it up and get some feedback on this. It's my first airbrush project on this scale.
The eyes are recessed behind the painting and follow you around as you look at them, neat little optical illusion.

Critiques and such welcome. First airbrush projet, and like I said, still a wee bit more work to go. Going to matte this in the frame with a deep red to black weathered felt

I love that lighting too. I found a link over at instructables.com a while ago and have been pinching the pennies away to make it. It's along the lines of what you're looking for I think.


Hope this helps!!!

I was looking around my neck of the woods for some windows after I saw this
>>>check out the wall of windows.....maybe do something with a few of what you have then tie it into your room this way. Even with the glass out, it would still look sharp.<<<<<

Was thinking of doing it with my space, not sure what limits you have in your nest.

Looking forward to what you make with them!!!
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Street Lamp Shade?!?! Figure this one out.... on: December 22, 2008 02:29:21 PM
Alright, I've got a "What the @#$% can I do with this?" for ya's!

I work at a Hospital and they're always throwing out wonderful things. This was an old shade that was used on a street lamp from the parking lot. We recently replaced all the llamps with a new design (more carriage/period lights) from the old geometric ones. This was the last surviving one and i saved it from the dumpster. And it's friggin big. It measures 16 inches x 16 inches x 16 inches....perfect square. It's made from Plexiglass and only has a few scratches on it, no cracks. It's not water tight though (as I found out while cleaning it. It also has a 8 inch diameter wide hol, metal rimmed, so it would screw on to the pole over the light.

here's a shot to show you size comparison to my height.

Anyway, so what do you guys think. I was considering putting a glass slab on it and having a transparent coffee table, putting lights in it and having it as a light source, maybe wrapping it in fabric and playing with that angle....i dunno...my mind is racing.....any ideas?
