I have tons of fashion magazine at the house. I was a 7th Ave. Fashion Designer and a Retail Executive for a famous department store, and I admit that I LUV FASHION. I grew up in the “garment center” and yes I am what you would call an original “Garmento”. I had my dream and career and now I can focus on other things, like art. But I still cannot resist going through all the glossy magazines and looking at all those red bottom shoes.
So what do I do with all the magazines. Recycle them into my artwork. Since I do not like images in my work, but I like mosaic, patterns and colors.
This video will show you how to use glossy magazines and transfer the color into encaustic wax.
