(if anyone wonders; I didn't get any heavenly revelation for my public commission the other day ... but it might still come)

So - I had decided I should try to recreate that wrapping, framing, golden effect - but in a more solid way. After some thoughts I decided glass should be the material - I had the knowledge (i e some knowledge) and the access to kilns at the Artists' Collective Workshops.
I was very happy about it!
Spray painted in gold - got very excited about how it looked. So nice and shiny!
tried it with a photo of Heidi Klum
|... and then I tried it out with some cut out faces I already had.|
... and then it was time for a one month Christmas break in Colombia ... and another month of administration and course preparation. ..and ... but in March this year I continued the tests
... to be continued ...

As I mentioned before I decided to keep the transparent plastic as a mask - instead of a paper one originally intended - as static electricity kept it in place.
When I spray painted I then got this unexpected effect - the plastic curled and created like a frame!
I liked this a lot; it became more iconic, but at the same time kind of trashy
fake, plastic, baroque
I had to take the plastic away though. (In this room and with that light it was still ok, but not as good as with the plastic on)
