I had a Tim Gunn “make it work” moment. I use Art Resin and now I have the color tints that can be added, so I was having fun experimenting. Originally this piece was the purple and white resin with one strip of silver corrugated paper. I just put it on where I wanted it and let it cure. What I didn’t count on was the self leveling that the resin does while it cures, so when it was done my silver paper strip shifted and was slightly diagonal. The fact that the strip wasn’t straight was so off putting to me and I let it sit for over a month. I didn’t want to waste materials so I sat down and stared at it for probably an hour or longer, and was about to throw it away…. but out of nowhere inspiration hit. Now I have a hot air balloon and the diagonal strip has been transformed into a basket 💟. I used about a million buttons for the balloons, trying to use materials I have had for years during other crazy art experiments 😆
So long story short… I’m glad I didn’t throw it away, and I’m glad that I’ve been watching Project Runway and had Tim Gunn’s voice in my head to “make it work”.
Thanks for reading 💗
