Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Crystal Art Elephants
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
The craftwork I’ve got to show you today is a project I started quite a while ago – as in a couple of years ago I think! It is a crystal art picture of a scene of the savannah. I’d only done around 2″ square of the top left corner when I had to put it away to do something else, and it didn’t get taken out again to work on until earlier this year.
Of course I’ve had other projects on the go at the same time, such as birthday cards for family members, etc., but I have been slowly working on the picture for the last few weeks. I set myself a challenge to finish it befors Easter, and as you can see – I got it done with time to spare!
What I Did
I’ve seen a lot of crystal art kits that I like tye look of on sale the last few years. Some which need to be fully covered in crystals, while some only have the focal point covered in crystals. Some which are ready mounted on a wooden frame, while some are only printed on canvas. Some huge, while some are just little trinkets. And with a wide difference in prices and quality.
I decided to get a ready framed one as it wouldn’t require further frameing work at the end, and also be a firm surface to work on. For size I went for a 30cm square one.
I carefully placed all the crystals in place following the gude letters. Once complete I used a paintbrush to cover the whole surface with a sealer.
What I Used
Here are several different photos of the finished piece. Some are just slightly different lighting or different angles.
I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
