Altered Fork


This is the 'dug up/found object'fork altered for the ABBA challenge, I alcohol inked it with a mix of pink and lilac, the wings are alcohol inked grunge board and the face is a piece that I have recycled from a taken apart art doll that I really didn't like anymore, it is a tin lid with a stamped face put in and glossy accents spread over it. The tines wouldn't bend easily , probably because it is nickel plated and very hard. I finished off with beaded wire and a charm - 'Who is she? - just Imagine'!

Absolutely fantastic Maureen. I'm going to have to sort through my cutlery drawer!

I love what you have done with your 'dug-up' fork, and the spoons on the earlier post. I wondered if you had seen Cloth, Paper, Scissors. It's a great magazine - my daughter and I both enjoy it and she altered some spoons in a similar way to yours. Great work and beautifully done, as ever.

Wowza, you got chance to do the challenge today, and this is amazing Maureen, you are so multi talented. I love how you used the alcohol inks, I have spray painted them before which is nice too.
Love your spoons too, thanks for showing us :)

This is SO original Maureen! She brings to mind a gentle sea creature from a childrens story. Great work - and thanks for all the inspiration you give.

I just love how you added some color....I chose a spoon for my entry since I don't have the slightest idea how to bend the fork. :)
