|As seen in Architectural Digest April 2012 Artisan column|
I just hope that I don't need to get my garage as organized as Eric Chapeau's shop (seen above) before I can begin!
Here's my eggshell stash after day 3 of saving.... (saving $400 a square foot of finished veneer - as if, I could hire Eric's crew)
My goal is to "eggshell" decoupage a board to fit behind this....
|Steuben dish, Crate & Barrel bowl, vintage ball from the same antiques store as the marble lamp.|
.....measuring 26" by 32". I wonder how many shells I will need? (How many square feet is that?) Will I have the patience to wait and save the number it will take to finish?
If I had the board, the other supplies (what are they again?) (oh! I have an x-acto knife!) and all the eggshells, I know I could "knock this out". I love detail work. Really. Love it!
Where do I find an artists assistant? You know, the gatherer of supplies. The garage art space organizer. The cut to size board "cutterer". ("oh sweet Daughter?" "hell-lou Hubby?")
The article mentions that the shells are mounted to paper first and then applied to the wall panel or object...do you think I would have to do that? (or just apply them directly to the board?) (I want to fit it into the back of my bookcase not attach it permanently.)
OK. This project of mine is open to suggestions and advice (especially if you really know what your talking about!)
Thank you :-)
