Oriental Wall Hanging

I get a monthly project from my local fun art store called The Art Bar. They send the neatest papers and accessories. I think I will give this one to my girlfriend who loves all things oriental

Hi, I really love the oriental piece you completed. Could you share with us how you constructed it? What materials did you work with to make it? Please tell us more!

I covered a piece of matboard with one of the oriental papers. I collaged a few pieces of other oriental ephemera, used a rubber stamp for the Japanese "long life" symbol, the lady and the red oriental stamp. I used encaustic wax in clear and red to accent. Created holes in the top and bottom with an awl. Used wire to attach the oriental ornament (coin?) Added a couple beads to the top wires and then wired the chopstick to those to use as a hanger. Thanks for viewing and leaving your comments.
