Mixed Media: Dark Fashion Portrait Art

 

Mixed-Media

"If you know exactly what you're going to do, why do it?"
~ Pablo Picasso

The Technique: start with an image torn from a magazine, a newspaper, or a sketchbook, that displays a certain facial expression - one which conveys an enticing emotion. Trace over it with pastel, splash it with nail varnish, and use hot glue to affix a steel chain around the outside as a border. Why the steel chain? Because you ran out of cinnamon hearts.
