Mini Retreat - Rigid Wrap

The third project we worked on was taught by Rinda. We used a material called "Rigid Wrap", a plaster wrap that is similar to broken bone casting material. It's easy to work with, although you should double up the layers to give the sheet some strength. We made a door hanging and then a project of our choice. We used paints, stamps, inks and ephemera.
The top photo is that of the holiday door hanging. I painted a silver/iridescent paint as the background. The moon is a diecut and the Santa is German Scrap. I stamped the gold stars and the sentiment.
The second piece was painted with a variety of Golden Fluid acrylics. I tore several Italian papers for the perimeter and cut out a couple of cherubs. The statue is a piece of ephemera from Rinda and I stamped "Journey". A thin layer of golden glaze was painted all over the piece.
