Hello! Welcome to my blog! For my Creative Paperclay Design Team post this month I am doing an upcycling project. What really is upcycling?
Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
A lot of artists repurpose items that others would normally throw away. I am no exception. I use them for the insides of lot of my sculptures with both plaster and air dry clays. I look at a bottle and see a doll or a cat, a box can make a base for a sculpture and a bottle or jar can make a mushroom or fairy house. An old paintbrush is no exception.
This month my project turns an old paintbrush, the type you use to paint the walls, into a fun sculpture that you can hang on your wall.
If there is anything you would like to see me make, leave a comment below and I will try my best to accommodate you.
Thanks for stopping by!
