Chunky ATC!

Hello!  This project is a last minute entry for the HDH Macabre Monday – Chunky ATC challenge.

It might not look elaborate, but it took a long time to make.  I adhered page after page after page to make this.  I threw a ribbon “bookmark” in between some of the layers.  I coated three sides with molding paste to give it some texture.  I painted those three sides red…then applied crackle glaze, then dark grey paint.  I painted a metal washer black and adhered a cog to it, then put it on the front.  I carved my own alchemical symbol stamps.

See here…


(top row, from left to right:  sulphur, mercury, salt.  second row, left to right:  moon, sun.)

I used archival gold ink to stamp.  I used a gold Sharpie for the lettering on the side.




(the letters used to be lead Winking smile)



Thanks for looking!
