I started with the elevated ATC shrine from Retro Cafe Art, adhering it to a more substantial base and adding lots of stuff. I had painted it it a basic white but knew it couldn't stay there. Some blue paint, a little black wash, some gold accents on top of crackle paste gave it just the look I wanted.
I have long admired many of the art projects that are eclectic and really "on the edge" but they're just not me. I think this is a great compromise piece...me and where I'd like to go.
