Omg!  Everything is absoulutely gorgeous.  I would love to see how you made your bookplates.  I have done a few of those, but was not impressed with how they turned out, thats why I am a copycat artist.  Ha.  You guys are such thoughtful friends.  That kind of thoughtfulness is what I would cherish forever.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm a pretty big Beardsley fan myself, ever since I was a little child and hardly knew what an oversized penis was.   Cheesy  This is also one of my favourite images of his, and you did an amazing job making something amazing!  When I get some spare time, I'm going to have to sit down and figure out what exactly you have done here.

And the mirror is so beautiful!  Great work, you're a caringfriend!

How cool.  What a lucky friend.  Who'd have thought that decoupage could be soooo cool.

I can see a whole collection of shadowboxes done with ancient Greek vase paintings. This actually gives me an idea for a b-day present for him, 'cause he's studied mythology for years.
hello color!

Everything's beautiful! Can you describe how you made the mirror? I mean, the resin looks really domed, so did you use a domed mold somehow, or... Tkxes!

Your friend is totally lucky! That shadow box is such a good idea. Everything is beautiful!

Life is short, so make out with someone tonight.

The mirror was pretty easy to do, When i brought it it had this vinyl type fabric glued to the top, i just ripped that off, it was only a $2 mirror so that came off pretty easy. Next i just chose an image from the internet, drew an oval around the section i wanted to use so i would have a guide to cut along. Then i printed it out on slightly thick paper (leftover from the frame stuff) then i sealed it using decopage glue/paste ***Its really important to seal the edges too*** you have to go very lightly over the image or the ink will run, i had to have a few goes at that. You could probally pre-seal it with some fixative spray or simular.

Next step i just attatched the image to the mirror, there was still some tacky glue left on it from the old cover so i just used that - otherwise just a little hot glue would even work.

Then i mixed up the resin - i got it from spotlight, its a two part one (It came in a pack for making coasters?? All i did was carefully pour the resin ontop of the image (the mirror had a bit of a lip on it and as the paper was thinner than the origional fabric this lip was now bigger) I just poured the resin until it formed a dome (because it is thicker than water it worked quite well) then i left it to set overnight! The first time i poured i put too much resin and it ran down the side so i had to tip it all off and start again, but the second time it was fine and it took overnite to dry.

Hope this clears things up, it was a relativly easy process just a case of having a go, and because the mirror was so cheap i didnt mind if it didnt turn out!

And thankyou to everyone who has commented! I was really pleased with how the shadow box turned out, my friend requested a few more frames so she could have a go at making a set!
