The Dance

This piece kicks off this month’s them of dance and entertainment.  The border at the bottom of the piece is made from paper clay that I stamped, crackled with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint and then painted with acrylic paint.  Click here to see the tutorial on “How to Stamp Paper Clay”.
