Each piece takes five to six weeks to complete.  First, I shape the wire and glue it to the surface board. 


The ancient art of cloisonne finds new expression with acrylic mediums. 

Then I fill in the shapes with a variety of acrylic mediums.  While the mediums are wet I use objects with interesting shapes to create textures. 

Once dry, I clean the wire.  Then I apply the color.   I clean the wire again and finish the piece with multiple layers of polymer.
