Portrait in Clay

The overall size of this pieces is 4 ¾” x 4”.  I used a crackle and transfer technique to age the image.  Click here for the tutorial.  The upper right corner and lower left corner are made from stamped paper clay, using the rubber stamp pictured below.  I just used the edges of the stamp and cutaway the other bits while the clay was wet.  Click here to see the tutorial on stamping paper clay.  The piece is embellished with brass findings (that I aged with paint), and images of vintage jewelry to which I’ve added crystals and Glossy Accents.
