This piece began with a hand-built wooden canvas, an armature is created from recyclables, to which paper mache is applied. Once the piece has dried and is ready, the icing begins! I get to make the piece come to life! I use acrylic paint along with torn magazine pages for collage, along with other mixed media such as: yarn, wire, rope, and whatever materials would make the piece come to life! This piece uses acrylic paint, torn paper collage, oil pastel, and watercolor to make this cup come alive! I hope this piece becomes a statement in almost any room of your home! Would be an awesome accent in a coffee shop, or business. It would also make an awesome gift for any occasion! What a surprise!! This piece would become a focal point wherever it is displayed! The piece is coated in a sealant, but it is not to be used in places where moisture will be present! Paper doesn't like moisture!
