A Little More Mona
I dug out one of my old wooden card catalog drawers (that I had recycled from the city dump a couple years ago).
The camera assemblage was destined to be a most perfect fit into the drawer.
Gluing it into place, I then created a cardboard divider toward the other end of the box...wanting to use that space for something more.
I lined the box (as well as the cardboard divider) with some of my old mapping paper. I also glued into place a balsa wood "lip" that runs around the inside edge of both compartments...a great way to position and glue glass into place.
A somewhat creepy porcelain doll's head seemed to be screaming..."Pick me!"
I sanded down the back of the dolls head (with an electric rotary sander) to make it flat...easier to glue into place upon a wooden "floater."
Adding a small metal frame over the face (this cardboard/frame piece glued onto the inside "lip"), the piece was almost complete.
With a final cutting of glass and placing it over the camera assemblage (also glued onto the "lip"), the piece is now complete with multiple layers and dimensions.
