Some of you may remember my my last, epic adventure with windowcolor?
Back in bavaria, I decorated my bedroom window.
Sounds boring …
But I didn’t do the usual little stars and flowers , no I didn’t – I did art noveau, and I did the whole window!
The pattern came from a art noveau pattern book and I modified it just a little bit to make it fit the frame. I did it in 8-10 pieces, the whole painting would have been imposible to insert into the window.
When we moved out I it too had to go.
With these pictures in mind, I leave you wondering what I’m planing to do to the bathroom … *muah-ha-ha*
A couple of weeks ago we finally went to the ‚Casa della Lindir‘ to fetch the origami picture I told you about.
It really is gorgeous! To think that it’s just one piece of paper … and these great columnlike, arabesquish … structures, reminding me above all of greek architecture … *sigh*
It’s hanging on our window now – it kept on falling down but it finally surrendered and remained fixed.
The passe-partout has a beautiful ruby colour, a bit like the one on this blog, only deeper.
I like how the light is shining through the paper, becoming this deep yellow shade – surrounded by ruby.
Here’s some details:
You can see the pre-folding lines. There all over the piece. Imagine the effort!
Once again: Thank you very much my dear!
I’m looking forward to the many more things you will create in the future!
It’s time for me to tell you what I did with all the apple-bark-paint-sites I was working on …
First for the sap.
You may remember this yellowish looks-like-egg-paint glas?
First of all I actually made some „Glue-size“ from it. I took a small strip of white linen and soaked it in the sap. After letting it go dry I repeated the process. And again. And …
I don’t remember exactly how often I did this, but I think it was about five times …
Now it looks this:
If soaked in water the paint should liquidate and be paintable againt. So much for theory, the practice is jet to come …
After this process there was still a lot of sap to go, so I poured it in another shell to let it go dry.
This is the sappy-sap,
and this ist the dried-sap.
It’s still very easy dissolvable and when painted still looks like this:
Twoday, on my way back from work, while driving towards some kind of metrological showdown, I saw a perfect rainbow.
If I hadn’t been late alreaddy and been so awfully hungry I would have gone and looked for …
Here’s the next part of my kitchen parade.
It’s a medievally inspired dame – and one of those pictures where I go from wanting-to-paint-somthing-and-being-not-really-sure-what-it-will-be to oh-look-what-I-did without this little inbetween step of thinking-about-the-thing-I’m-going-to-paint.
Dear Dreisam, since you asked … the clothes are roughly inspiered by historic pieces – but nothing more!
