Sometimes the work is just for fun
One of the Art Girls brought these lovely hand-made Italian shoes to the studio. I used one before in the original white of the shoe. My friend had an idea to paint her shoe red but in the end it didn't please her, so she passed the shoe along to me. I sprayed a high glaze on the red shoe, which gave it a ceramic-like finish and changed the character of the shoe. The porcelain hand fit perfectly - in size, texture and that little off-kilter touch I like. Red roses, flowers tipped with black, black chain and the mirror base completes the hard-glaze vibe.
