Avia - #73: the custom cranes
This was a requested custom wall hang inspired in part by #56. The main design element was to be the presence of 6 cranes. Materials included a 12" long wood piece, stock paper, a photograph of Shell Falls in Wyoming, metal frame bits, eye screws, and a length of chain. New techniques used for this wall hang included splicing background stock paper with the waterfall photograph, painting with chalk paint, plus a combination of sealing, sanding, and waxing / wiping with multiple colors of creme wax. The eye screws were inserted into the sides for the hanging chain.
