Dans ma maison il y a...un objet altéré


This is my piece for Dans ma maison il y a... My altered object is an altoid tin that I covered with alcohol inked and sanded pieces of embossed metal. I had to figure out a way to add a roof so that it would be house shaped - what I used was a piece of foam core board covered with aluminum foil - the foam core was easy to cut so it worked well to cut out the curve of the tin so it could be attached to the top.
