Created By Hand challenged us this week to alter something! Some while ago I was sent these bamboo tiles - I'm not actually sure what they're FOR, but they have two holes drilled top to bottom.
So I rummaged about to make something with it and found this mask.
I coloured the tile with alcohol inks then stamped the crackle over the top with dark blue Staz-On. I also used alcohol ink to make the eyes blue. The mask isn't exactly flat so although I superglued it down I used wire as well - both to anchor it and act as a decorative element with a few beads threaded on. I glued a brooch back on this - but it could easily have been made into a pendant by using the pre-drilled holes. I've never attempted anything like this before and I'm quite pleased with the result!
