Melting Rose Chair

This Project came from the Hard Rubbish Collections. It's amazing what people throw away. This chair looked old, rotting used and abused... so I simply had to pick the damn thing up and take it home with me ;)
I spent the next two weeks attacking it with a sandpaper, a saw and a hell of a lot of filler. The chair hadn't been very well looked after and had weathered quite a bit. After getting it ship shape I spent the next week Painting on it :)

A lot of people simply throw the old out for the new because the new's well... new. This chair had seen better days, but a lot of the junk out there isn't actually junk. The sad thing is, people are materialistic and don't see the hidden gems for the amazing possibilities that they are. Thus I decided to save a little piece of junk and make it into my new project ;) Another persons rubbish is someone else's treasure .... Well, I think that's the saying lol. Hope you like my creative flair... FYI the chair is safe to sit on and to protect it from ever feeling the weather again, it has a thick coating of Glass Coat. ;)

Awwww Thank you <3 I appreciate the comment :)


Ps sorry about the late reply I gave up ALL things art to change myself.... for a year and a bit. It was stupid, I hope my art is not dead now. :(

I hope your "change" works out for the best :) This is just my opinion but I don't believe talent can die. I guess the way we feel about it might change but I'll bet it's hounding you to get started again :)
Sorry for speaking when not asked to but I'm over 60 and have a license to do that!

;) You're opinion may be right ;) My ability has not dissappeared (Thank goodness) and I've started again ;) look forward to my next gallery post later ;)

Speak as much as you want! I love when people speak there minds. Opinions and perspectives are what make art so interesting. ;) Also, when I'm sixty I plan to have fluorescent hair, wear leather pants and ride a motorbike around town just because I can ;) I envy how people who have lived full lives can always speak their minds.... it's something that people should be able to do at any age, although hitting people with walking sticks when they annoy you is a special kind of privilege only appointed the the over 90's who can get away with anything ;) I can't wait to have my own walking stick whacking rights :P

I must agree with the others and say again that the drip effect is brilliant. I'm not all that much of a flower enthusist, but if I saw this somewhere for sail and I had the funds to purchase such a masterpiece, I would, then it would become the chair I sit in while I practice my guitar.

You practice guitar? Awesome ;) I can only make one make angry noises lol.... >.< Awwwwwwww :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: Yay a non flower enthusist likes my chair :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: ;) it's actually going on sale at my first exhibition next year ;) I'm working my tail off to finish a whole set of furniture ;) so if you get really famous you should buy it for more than my asking hehe ... plus... I have no idea what price I should put it for... Any suggestions for me to think about? As a person who's never sold anything for more than a hundred bucks... a proper exhibition requires a proper price tag... but lol ;( I'm clueless on what my mark should be
