I think this is so neat! It's like paint-by-numbers without the numbers. I want to give this a try...

So, you put the paint right over the photo? And do you print the photo on regular paper or photo paper?

yeah you print it on normal paper, and just paint right over it.... its hard to smooth it out and not get bubbles, but its possible... just keep trying! its easiest to paint the glue on the back with a paint brush then press and smooth with your hands, also when you varnish the painting after you're done it should smooth out the edges that may have turned up... lol kind of like modge podging!

spice up some of your favorite pictures with color and jazz the completed project looks something like this:

This was something that My best friend and I came up with while bored on day... you can do this with a friend or alone... and its super fun [and time consuming for these long boring summer days]  first take a picture and print it off in black and white from your computer like this[best of only faces]:

then paste [i used Elmers white glue]  brushing on the glue with a paint brush for solid coverage without those gross glue bumps [you know what i'm talking about] it should look sort of like this:

then the fun begins... pick crazy colors [the more colorful the better] the whole idea is to reproduce the picture but in an Andy Wharhol type style... [for those of you who don't know Mr. Warhol here is a link to look at some of his work: http://www.artchive.com/artchive/W/warhol.html ] after you paint the picture paint a crazy fun background [if you still have space on your canvas]  with different things that the both of you like, you should get an outcome like this:

**this is one i did on my own**

**ones my best friend and i did together** 

**all of the completed onesr**

aren't they just precious! I LOVE THEM! 
thank you for looking!!!

if you don't think you can do faces don't worry its pretty simple... all the lighter parts of the face paint with a light color [whatever color mixed with white]  and on the darker parts of the face paint with a dark color [whatever color mixed with black] then fill in the rest with the color tones and you'll have a face looking like yours in no time!
***note: if you are doing this with a friend let the more art inclined person do the picture and then the other do the background, that's how my friend and i worked it anyways ***

These are two painting my best friend and I did together just for fun, I did the people and she did the back grounds... i love them. they are so colorful and just represent us so well!   

the first one we did... the background represents what all we did on our recent Disney vacation when she came to visit me during my internship down there! we went to epcot, ate at the T-rex resteraunt, road soarin', and met aladdin!Also the words are from the song "when you're the best of friends" from the fox and the hound!

the second...the background also representing stuff we did in Disney, went into planet hollywood, the butterfly garden, met Mulan, and ate fish and chips in he UK! these words are from aladdin's "you ain't never had a friend like me"

both together...

we made two so we could each have one, but now we both love them both so we might have to get copies made of them so we can each have both!

comments and criticism greatly appreciated! Smiley

This was my final project in my 2D design class, it is not my best work but I really liked the colors... I wish now i could go back and change a lot of things about it [after learning more techniques and such] but I do still enjoy the elementary of it... and its always good for a nice laugh!

comments and criticism are greatly appreciated!

9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / plexi glass flower on: June 27, 2009 11:23:46 AM
This is a table top flower I made out of Plexiglas! the petals were made by warming the plexi glass with a heat gun and bending in the shape of petals.

some petals were heated to the bubbling point to provide texture, while other petals were sand blasted to produce different textures.

the base was made out of a thicker piece of Plexiglas and spray painted black with glossy black flowers hand painted for extra accents

the black spirals were created by black Plexiglas heated and twisted around a pencil

comments and criticism greatly appreciated!
10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 3D Wire Dragon! on: June 27, 2009 11:10:51 AM
This was my final project for 3D Design in College....I'm always looking for a challenge, and this sure was one! It took about three weeks and a hundred smaller pipe cleaner models, but finally a relatively good result came out!

it is made out of old nasty greasy wire, and nice new shinny very thin copper wire. The copper wire is mainly used to join together the different parts of the dragon itself, and because its so thin it wraps and binds perfectly!

the castle top base is made out of styrofoam blocks dipped into plaster that is dyed with cement dye!  

hope you enjoy it as much as my boyfriend does, we are still trying to figure out a name for it!

comments and criticism greatly appreciated!
