Glitter Man

Playful, that was what came to mind as I purchased three wagon pull toy boxes in birch with red plastic wheels.  Playful glitter, sparkle, and more glitter.  I wanted to create something playful and childlike in these toy boxes and in the first one we have Glitter Man.  Not sure what’s up with these listening ears but they seem to be talking to me, an ear/tongue perhaps?  The dancing gypsy, well maybe he is listening to her! Oh and a polymer clay eye, thanks to what I learned from my class with Judy Shea, one of the most playful people I know….

    What an absolutely FUN altered art project, Corrine! Can’t wait to see the other two wagons! My favorite part? Why, that polymer eye, of course! Great project!

    Fabulous idea – I’ve been looking for some shallow drawers to avoid the framing issue but no luck yet – these would be perfect!

    I love this idea of letting your heart out to play …with a child’s pull toy used for blocks. I am painting today…and can hardly wait to get started. We must all continue to play our way through the days. Imagine and Live in playful peace. Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
