Assemblage - Be My Angel
Finished up this assemblage angel a couple of days ago and I would like to point out that I did use one of the techniques I learned from last month! There are crushed egg shells lying beneath the heart. The body of the angel is an old brass plate that serves as a handle for interior sliding doors. If anyone knows the correct term for it, please let me know. The heart is out of clay. The head is an old rusted bottle cap I found while in Florida, and the wings are a thick plastic made to ressemble glass with mosaic on the front side. The base of the piece is an old brass light switch plate.
