***HOT HOT HOT*** Aussie Dares

I used an old book. Burnt a big hole using a butane torch and concentrated the flame just in the centre of the paper pages to make if you like a niche.. I inserted an old tin type photo of a young girl, a few dried jasmine flowers and used Utee that had been cooked for approx 10 hours until it went an amber colour. I poured the melted Utee in until it was all covered. Then I embellished the book with aged brass mesh, a few parts from an old type writer and dictionary paper quote.


I love the look of all these burn pages all stacked upon another.







Aged fine copper mesh was used here on the left, it almost looks as if its still on fire with its coppery hues.




Jump on over to Aussie Dares to see more wonderful artwork created by the girls.

Love Sarah

Wow, this piece is incredible, Sarah!
It looks so old, like something I'd pick up in an antiques shop. Simply perfect, you've outdone yourself!
