Mixed Media Female Bust

This bust began with a generous amount  of floor cement, a form and a day to set.  She was made to look aged, while pouring I added rocks and shredded paper.  I was not concerned with cracked areas.  Once she was dry (1-2 days)  I then rubbed some paint on her, she looked okay but not aged enough, I then added vintage italian pieces of paper and coffee filter paper.  I gave her several layers of wax, making sure to melt each layer.  I then wiped a stain over her and allowed her to cool dry.  I think she has charm and age…  I plan to make many more of these some with the shoulders and more of a torso, and also a man bust will be coming soon….Lisa   The Altered Piece
