Mixed Media Altered Measuring Spoons Set

Hi all, today I want to show you my new work, Mixed Media Altered measuring spoons set !

I have always love the measuring spoons and I kind of bought a few sets just because they are cute or cool. Never for cooking lol

So here the main part is using Finnabair's latest Plaster Paste to make parts with the new Prima mould. I have tried a few times and wasnt able to get a full piece but I think the cracking and separate parts are actually pretty cool. I simply use an expired credit card to put a generous amount of plaster paste into the mould , then wait. If you waited for a few days the parts will be hard as rock but only one day wait, the parts will be a bit soft and able to bend a little bit for shaping.

Finn's new paper paste is definitely one of my fav texture pastes in the history ! cos it is very flexible for you to make shapes or build up.
The small spoon on the left hand side of the below photo , you can see a textured shape, it was made with 100% paper paste, you only need to use your palette knife to tweak the shape until you are happy with it .

Coloring for the four spoons of course is with the new three rust sets. There are nine colors which make blending and experimenting so FUN !

I hope you like this project. and maybe try out the paper and plaster paste !!
