This is the first one I made for the DSO in Naperville a few months back, "Steampunk Gal."
It happened to make a big Hoopla and two people were bidding on it, and it finally went for $1500.
Service work when does it end....I look at it as a challenge to see if I can do it and well not only can I do it once but this gal was able to do it again.
8.Working with the sheet music and then starting to add the patina of age to it. Test run on the glass bottle to see how it would look with the moss and the rose...Question was should I have one bottle or three?
9. Yesterday I was able to get to this point with the violin. As you can see it went pretty far... I had to sand the violin first though to scuff it up and give it some character and also it provides a great surface for the next layer of glazing to on and sink in.
10. Finished piece. Title-Bohemian Girl.
