29 Faces Day 10

I'm a day behind!  The posting for day 10 was inspired by Paper Rainbow and her experimentation with teabags.  

I stuck down the tea bags with mod podge, then applied a squirt of inks, painted the face with acrylic and then applied a layer of gloss medium.

I enjoyed this proces.....experimental and messy and no hang-ups about getting it to look good!

The face was a translation of  Orme Sight, designed by Thomson Dagnall and is a sculpture at Beacon Fell, Lancashire. On a clear day it was possible to see to The Great Orme at Llandudno through the eye of the sculpture. Unfortunately this is not possible now as the feature has been subjected to vandalism.

  1. I love your tea-bag experimentation. They do make brilliant weathered backgrounds and fits perfectly with your subject. The reference photograph is very interesting, I really like the concept of looking through the eye to a landmark, what a shame it was vandalised!
