BRITTNEY MITRO COSTUME'S ROCK !.. CHECK HER ART OUT.. LINK BELOW

https://www.facebook.com/BrittneyMitroCostumes........All of my pieces are created with second hand materials. This is not a trendy statement of trying to be cool(although of course i do find it cool!), but a responsible action I took to reducing my footprint. Our world is in a crisis and people are blindly buying and tossing and BUYING and tossing extreme amounts of waste. I not only find the challenge of second hand materials fun, but I find it crucial to be a part of the change I wish to see in the world. Artists are huge contributors to creating waste in the world, and I challenge any creator to see how they too can reduce the amount of waste they are creating. Put Mother Nature first for a change, and see that life is only more beautiful when you protect our precious land  reduce, reuse, recycle!

HUICHOL INDIAN YARN ART AT FUNKYLUKE.ETSY COM


The Huichol Indians of Mexico are known for their yarn paintings. The Huichols take beeswax which they melt in the sun, and spread it over a piece of wood. They then push coloured yarn into the wax to create images. You can create your own yarn painting using glue and scraps of yarn and wool.

Carved From a Single Piece of Wood

Stunning Swimming Sculpture is Carved From a Single Piece of Wood


It may be hard to believe, but this stunning sculpture was carved from a single piece of wood. Artist Stefanie Rocknak, who you may remember as the creator of that ghostly Edgar Allan Poe sculpture, is behind this fascinating figurative work. Slightly larger than life-size, the sculpture, called The Swimmer, was part of a three piece commission under the project The Triathlete. The other two pieces are called The Biker and The Runner. Each of them show a sense of movement. As Rocknak tells us, "These days, I am not very interested in sculpted figures, or real people, that 'strike a pose.' I am much more intrigued by folks who are on their way to or from somewhere. They seem more genuine to me."
Love how Rocknak captures the moment in time when a swimmer comes up for a breath. Notice the incredible details like the splashes of water and the lines on the hand.

DIY Glass Garden Flowers

DIY Glass Garden Flowers

Learn how to make glass garden flowers from old plates, bowls, candleholders, and more.

Recycle mismatched plates, bowls or candleholders into beautiful glass garden flowers. These show-stopper garden decorations are sure to be one-of-a-kind and won’t require any watering!

MATERIALS:

  • 3 glass plates, bowls or dishes in three different sizes
  • glass candleholder, salt or pepper shaker, or small vase
  • 1 small vase that is flat on one side
  • Alcohol wipes
  • Paint specifically for glass
  • Paintbrushes or sponges
  • Markers or pens for glass
  • Clear, waterproof silicone
  • Copper, metal or PVC pipe

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1

Clean the glass pieces thoroughly with alcohol wipes and let them dry. Use either a sponge or paintbrush to paint the glass pieces, covering completely. If you want, add details like stripes, circles or petals. A couple of layers might be necessary to get full coverage. Use the markers or pens to add small details.

STEP 2

Bake the glass pieces according to baking directions on the paint bottles. (In general, bake at 325 degrees on the top rack for about 20 minutes.) But be careful: Very thin plates can break in the oven. And be sure to open your windows or turn on the exhaust fan, because the paints can have a strong odor when baking. Turn off the oven, and let the glass pieces cool completely before removing them.

STEP 3

Lay the largest plate flat on a covered surface. Apply silicone to the bottom of the next largest piece and press it down onto your base plate. Continue applying silicone to the bottom of each of the smaller pieces until the flower is assembled. Let the whole piece dry overnight.

STEP 4

The next day, apply silicone to the smallest vase and, holding the vase upside down, press it to the back of the flower. This will serve as the mount that fits over the pipe for display purposes. Let it dry overnight.

STEP 5

Pound the pipe into the ground, slip the flower over the pipe and enjoy. Now make a few more—they look great in groups of two or three.
