Howdy doody! Are you loving this weather like me? It's perfect for creating! 

I love altering vinyl records - it's a complex canvas because it can melt using a heat gun if you're not careful. But that's also a strength if that's your focus! 

Vinyl is so pliable when heated up. You can twist it, cut it, pull it, pierce it. You can get really unique configurations to fit your mixed media subject. I wanted something grungy and warped and raw for this. 

Pressing doo dads and found objects into the cement base I spread around gives it a primordial look. 

It's like a greasy, patinaed wasteland... 

If you've never tried vinyl, I highly recommend it. It'll push your creativity to the next level!

  3. I love the fossil like feel to this... or maybe a bit of a post apocalyptic remnant of days gone. Really great texture and detail. So tactile looking.


Hey - Tell me something good!
