Sophya Vidal for Re-Invent a Work of Art (2013)
Inspiration Piece: Le Bassin Aux Nympheas, Les Iris d'Eau
Inspiration Artist: Claude Monet
I made this in many small steps, all inspired by the paper shreds that came in the kit. There were 3 main parts: the bridge, the pond, and the tree.
I used the small flat balsa wood pieces for the mand base, the green foam for the plant bases and the box itself to house this diorama. I also painted the large flat wood piece for a sky background, like the painting has.
I loved working with the shredded paper- I dyed it by mixing hot water and acrylic paint then letting fistfuls of paper soak it up and dry overnight. this was great fun!
Materials and tools used:
Flat Balsa wood
Glue- including the one hot glue stick
Large flat piece of wood
Mystery box itself
Snips (for wire)
white spray paint for bridge
