More Making Mari

Making Mari 4

The flat pack Mari Lwyd kit I’m making up isn’t difficult, but it’s time consuming. I’ve assembled the upper and lower parts of the skull and now I’m pasting it all over with paper and PVA glue. This will give it a good surface for painting, increase the strength of the sections and add a layer of waterproof protection. It’s taken a while because it’s fiddly and very, very sticky and I have to keep leaving it to dry before I can work on another bit. But the pasting is finished now and it’s drying off. Tomorrow I’ll be giving it a couple of coats of acrylic gesso.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
