Medicine Cabinet . . .

Or, what have you tangled lately?

A couple years ago,we found an old clock case at a yard sale that had glass shelves in it instead of a clock.

Maria said, "Let's get it."


When we got home, Maria cleaned it up and applied gesso to the border to create a white background. She used a black Sakura® Pigma™ Graphic 1 to tangle on the gesso.  After distressing it with some sandpaper and stain she topped it off with a couple coats of polyurethane.

A local glass store replaced the glass with a mirror and, Voilá, the medicine cabinet!

I have a paper mâché box with hinges and a handle that I carry my pens and art journal around in that I am in the process of tangling, but it's not done yet. My son gave it to me for Christmas.

I've been using gesso and then tangling on rocks washed smooth by the ocean, but I think I'll also try a coat of acrylic paint on them before tangling.
