Found-Object Art: The easy/lazy way.
Mr Husband Man spotted an awesome piece of driftwood sculpture when we had a beach trip on the weekend. He gave it to me straight away, because he thought it looked like a mad chicken, and hey, who owns all the mad chickens? Ok, both of us, but you couldn’t prove it by most people 😛
We don’t know what it is. It looks sort of like a dried seaweed pod thing to me, but I’m not at all sure! I knew I wanted it displayed, though.
So, bring out the trusty Hot Glue Gun (thanks, neighbour N! Awesome present!), a selection of cool papers, and an old frame.
I found the paper I liked as a background, and glued it on to the backing board of the frame, then glued the mad chicken to the paper.
Framed, and WOLLA! Art! Ish. I like it, it makes me laugh.
However.. word to the wise: check that your anchor points on the back of the frame are the right way up before gluing. Ahem.
Ah well, I’ll just use a hook instead.
HEALTH AND SAFETY WARNING! They call it a Hot Glue Gun because the glue is Hot. With a capital HOOOOOO! (the noise you make if you forget that, and touch the glue too soon for any reason). The blisters come up fast, and they hurt. 😉
