    Kasia Salmanowicz created this beauty with a Finnabair wax package!

    My project is a kind of recycling because, instead of throwing away some things, we can still have a lot of creative fun with them. Do you know what this is?
    This challenge motivated me to alter the Finnabair wax package! You probably have a lot of them in your craft rooms. 😉 I used basic medium here, such as gesso and heavy body gel, and some other additions. You will find mould elements, art stones, cabochons, and metal embellishments.
    All os these are combined with liquid acrylic paints and beautiful wax colors.
    Have a nice day!”

    Kasia Bogatko created this gorgeous, multi-layered piece using plastic packaging!

    “Recycling is one of my favorite themes, as it can help you create altered art based on giving a second life to objects. Very often I discover their completely different faces. This time our theme is product packaging, which gives us endless possibilities.

    As my base, I used plastic packaging. After covering with gesso, even plastic will easily accept all media and paints. My composition is also made of recycled elements. There are many resin and chipboard pieces, that come from some unsuccessful or unfinished projects. I usually don’t throw away such components because they can be useful in a different way. Between the layers of the artwork, you can also find cardboard from the packaging.

    To unify all these elements I used gesso and liquid acrylic paints, finished with silver wax to enhance resin details and all textures.

    I hope that you’ll be inspired and think about plastic and cardboard packaging, not as a trash, but as a base to an excellent and new project.” ~ Kasia

    Juliya Tirskaya’s project is so beautiful. You cannot even tell she included a package from metal embellies!

    “I like to use different packaging. For this work, I took a beautiful package from metal embellishments, painted it with the Liquid Acrylic Burnt Sienna, and it became the base of my project. I then added Rust Paste and combined the decor with the background. Wax in Vintage Gold put the finishing touches on my piece.” ~ Juliya
