9781581809725: Altered Curiosities: Assemblage Techniques and Projects

Discover a curious world of assemblage with projects that have a story to tell!

Step inside Altered Curiosities, where a wisdom tooth gets its own shrine, a honeybee lights up the room and a taxidermy eye becomes the eye in the back of your head. As author Jane Wynn shares her unique approach to mixed-media art, you'll learn to alter, age and transform odd objects into novel new works of your own creation.

Step-by-step instructions guide you in making delightfully different projects that go way beyond art for the wall—including jewelry, hair accessories, a keepsake box, a bird feeder and more—all accompanied by a story about the inspiration behind the project. You'll also learn to:

  • Find your personal symbols and incorporate them into your work.
  • Alter toy figures to create curious new creatures.
  • Master simple soldering techniques that take you beyond the soldering iron.
  • Apply beautiful patinas and etchings to brass and copper.
  • Transform cast resin into pieces that look like metal.

The endless possibilities of assemblage are yours to discover! Let Altered Curiosities inspire you to create a new world that's all your own.

Book Description North Light Books, 2007. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Two very important things make this book stand out from the crowd of other collage, mixed-media and assemblage titles: the projectsfull of oddities and the unexpectedand the techniquesseveral of which have never been published before. A common element of Jane Wynns style is to find an object, break it and put it together again (sometimes more than once), and she loves using anthropomorphic associations to tell stories in her projects. Step by step, readers will learn her unique method and her sought-after techniques. Along with surface alterations (faux-aging, patinas and the use of unusual household products) Altered Curiosities teaches metal etching with rubber stamps, simple wiring to create dramatic lighting, instruction for altering simple toy figures (making two-headed animals, for instance) and more.
