New Mail Art for the Day

Self portrait mail art.

Wow, OK. This is aluminum foil (and if you notice under the bottom of the big 3 and the bomber, there is the outline of a star-it's a piece of star shaped cardboard underneath). I was not sure how I was going to get paint to stick to the foil, but I had an idea..I used the stencil I made a few weeks ago and spray paint. Then I used acrylics (three coats-you have to put it on almost with a dry brush technique or it beads up on the metal) with the bullseye/crosshair and the numbers. The bomber is a tinted photo cut out. I'm not even sure I'm going to mail it.

Who'd want a picture of me???

That's a great one. :) I'm sure the USPS will treat it with great care. ;)

If you wrap it with bubble wrap maybe and put it in a big box.
