Gleaning at the City Dump #55
I'm working on a new piece, a series of possibly three pieces, using the small plastic foosball players that I got at the dump several days ago. The box itself is another one of the small drawers that I pulled out of some cabinet. The box has been "papered" in my usual technique...old dictionary pages, alcohol dye...all of which ends up being sanded when dry...we assemblage artists seem to love that "aged" look. The top part is finished, and I have a few ideas that I'm still working with for the bottom. Both the top and bottom sections will be covered with glass.
These little white "boards" gleaned from the dump don't really look like much at first glance, but, unlike some of the things I pick up in the trash, these were great finds! They look to be some kind of industrial samples, covered with thin protective plastic on each side which can be peeled away revealing a nice white smooth surface. I have about a hundred of them, 5 x 7"...great substrates for all kinds of smaller projects.
