Guilded Hanger


I was interested to see how the guilding flakes worked with the fine detailed LP stamps.  I was amazed that there was some black showing through round the shoulders and body of the image.  The photo's not that great, but it does look quite good in real life.

I used a piece of my home made washi tape across the bottom, tore the black card, added some treasure gold and tied a piece of white and red twill around the bottom.

I took the string off the hanger and replaced it with some thicker red cord.  The hanger is painted in blood orange fresco paint.
