Made entirely of wood, with the Colorado flag, mountains with forest, and wooden shelf with hangers, all being separate pieces for 3D effect.
The wooden piece for the flag was painted first with acrylic paint. The mountains and forest were then carved to shape out of a single wooden piece, and painted with watercolor paint from a tube, barely thinning the paint. The wooden shelf was stained and molding on the shelf edging was stained and added for style. The shelf was then attached to the flag piece, and 4 brushed metal coat hangers(not pictured) were attached to the underside of the shelf.
The mountain piece was then attached to the shelf with spacers, and 2 battery operated strips of blue led light strands were mounted between the mountain and flag pieces for a backlit glow effect. Looks really cool in the dark as a nightlight.
I was fortunate enough to grow up with a professional artist for a father, this project was made by him as a Christmas gift for my family. I owe all my knowledge of art to him, thanks dad!
