The WHITE comes from art basics HEAVY GESSO, in which the chipboard tag was painted, also white embossing enamel and the Prima 'Beautiful' sticker.
The GREY comes from all the metal embellishments , coated first in art basics CLEAR gesso and then sprayed with Prima Color Bloom Mist in Vintage Coal.

"Looking" is not the same as "seeing".
I like to embrace "difference". I love that our world is so diverse, and I guess that all starts with how we "see" things. We can all "look" at the same objects, images and even situations, but we will all "see" different things, what they are and what they can become.
Take a chipboard tag, some Finnabair Vintage Trinket Bottle Caps, some Finnabair art basics Gel Medium, some glass beads and a few metal bits and pieces and what I see will be totally different to what others will see.
Take a second look and see something different again......
This tag has a "moving part."
A little loop of leather keeps one eye shut.
The glass bead tear was shaped with 3D Matte Gel and the glass beads dropped on.
Glass beads and metal coloured with distress stains; coated first with Finnabair art basics clear gesso to allow stains to adhere.
All Finnabair art basics Gells and Gesso from Mixed Media Place.

Even the Sphinx has eyes;
and as a result there are
various truths, and as a result
there is no truth."

There are lots of "bits" making up this piece, all with different surfaces........wood, metal, chipboard, polystyrene, plastic and paper and the 3D Matte Gel has been used throughout to secure them. An added bonus is how easy and "clean" it is to use and how it dries completely clear.
Using Soft Gloss Gel with Acrylic paint makes it more translucent, and then easier to build up richly coloured layers of paint.
A list of products I used can be found HERE at Mixed Media Place and they can be purchased from HERE at Mixed Media Place Store.
