Defining Moments

I created a 10 x 10 wood plaque for a friend and coworker to
celebrate the day he was baptized.
I wanted to create something that would be house friendly; going with any decor,
as well as something that was masculine.
What better way to go masculine than with gears and bolts.
(Some of the stuff came from work)
I added texture and dimension with a wood grain stencil
and some modeling paste.
Then using several colors of distress stains I ended up with this...

The middle looks a little funky because the stencil is only 6" and I did not line up the 
wood grain that well, but knowing I was going to do stuff in the center
and all the way across it worked.

The gears and stuff I painted with metallic paints and then
added some black here and there to give a bit more dimension.

 I added a piece of cheesecloth that I soaked with some of the distress
stains and some Paverpol to make it stiff.
Hard to see in the picture but both sides go off the edges
a little.

 Final project...

Aerial Silks

I finally decided to try my hand with a sculpture.

And after several tries I am happy with the results.

The full details are on Paverpol's blog site
but I wanted to show you what the final results are...

Thanks Nikki for helping me take an idea to this. Love you my friend!
