Reclaimed Wood Miniatures.

We've been testing out different media on all kinds of surfaces in the French Fry house lately.  And I mean all surfaces.  I have a feeling I'm going to keep plowing through Magic Erasers with this busy little artist.

Our new favorite tools are the Crayola Slick Stix, which are the closest thing to drawing with rainbow colored lipstick.  These marker-y/paint/oil pastel combos are super baby friendly and easy to apply.  So, we tested them out on some lumber scraps we had left from a recent bathroom reno.



 


It's wonderful seeing how her paintings evolve during her studio sessions. The Slick Stix weren't water resistant like oil pastels are, however when watered down they melted down into a beautiful wash.

She added a final layer of black and white acrylic to her reclaimed wood diptych.  Now to find a place to display these special little wood pieces.
