Now it’s ready to create the art by using mis-tinted paint (which could make its way to a waste dump), river rocks (some collected from places I have visited all over the United States & Canada), beach sea glass, driftwood, bottle corks…you name it. Most items can be re-used in some way.
When it’s all done I finish it off with a thin top layer of water base, polyurethane protection.
Even the shipping materials are reused cardboard and paper. I try to reuse as much as possible. It is important to me that I leave as small of a footprint on this earth as possible and recycling can be done in so many ways.
