Description

This highly sparkly dried seed head composition glistens beautifully in both natural and artificial light. It's so joyful to look at because it really twinkles!

I have reclaimed some slate and hand-cut it into a tile. The background and seed heads are formed from very fine glitter; I have used the type that nail technicians use as this gives a smoother appearance than regular craft glitter. The effect when the background is blended is very shimmery, almost as if a sheet has been applied to the slate. I have overlaid the background with a stylised seed heads. The purple, bright pink and silver background highlight the dark, silvery foliage.

I have not varnished over the tiles as I have found through various experiments that the glitter effect becomes dulled. This means that the tile needs to be kept dry.

I have mounted the slate onto some reclaimed timber which I have sanded lightly to remove rough edges whilst maintaining the rustic look. I finished the timber with a little wax, just to enhance the colour and grain.

There is a hole drilled into the back of the wood so this is ready to go up on your wall.
