Original unique art with alcohol ink, epoxy and dry flowers.1) Fine Art Painting - these paintings are done with high quality acrylic paints - Golden, mixed media and/or alcohol ink painting. I use gold leaf applications and gold/silver leaf 2) Fine Art Painting in alcohol ink sealed in epoxy/resin - these paintings are embedded in epoxy and have interesting lights effects on the back - they can be displayed on a wall, corner frame and event in the bathroom since the humidity is not an issue for epoxy 3) Epoxy/resin creations - these coasters, bookmarks, trays, cake holders are cerated with epoxy and alcohol ink effect - they may have dry flowers embedded within them (I do press and dry the flowers and ensure they are UV Archived with spray). they are finalized with gold leaf application 4) Vintage items that have been completely re-designed to give them new life: -silver tray and silver items are cleaned, mixed media applied - decoupage, inks and gold leaf and they are covered with epoxy to ensure that they do not tarnish any longer - this is my signature product that i invented 5) Glass painting- i paint glass objects on the outside - bowls, plates, cake trays, glasses and seal them with epoxy - the inside of the object remains glass 6) Dry flowers - i press and dry the flowers and and ensure they are UV Archived with spray - i arrange them in a frame 7) the jewelry is with my dry flowers and uv resin
