Call it blasphemy, but I've never been a big fan of the Wizard of Oz. Perhaps it's because my family momentarily forgot me, Betsy Skagen, upstairs in my crib as an infant when there was a tornado in the neighborhood.
Tutorial to make the Behind the Curtain--a steampunk homage to Oz
Step 2 Paint interior and exterior of shadow box and all Gina's laser cut pieces with black gesso. Let dry.
Step 6 Use the Groove to blend Guatemalan Green onto the Black Herringbone Sheet. Then cover the bristles with Pink Grapefruit and without spinning the Groove, press the bristles straight down onto the paper to create a textured pattern. Let dry.
Step 8 Adhere the solid teal rectangle paper to the back of the box.
Step 9 Paint Guatemalan Green on some of the curlicues of the Lattice Panel. After it dries, attach the lattice to the back of the box over the teal paper.
Did the tin man get a heart? Did Oz ever stop making voices in my head? Did I survive the tornado in my infancy? Come back tomorrow to have all your questions answered (or not) and see the exciting conclusion of this tutorial.
P.S. If you are seeing this after August 30, this link should take you to Part Two.
