Finnabair New Art Recipe For Prima

This months recipe includes Patina Effect Paste, Modeling Paste, Sparks Acrylic Paints, and Metallique Waxes.
Each and every one of these mediums is my favourite. They individually have very unique qualities, and deliver interesting and varied visual and textural effects.
I started with a plain, dull little black box.

Journal Page.......Looking For Facts

Don't believe everything you hear or read. So, where do you find the "facts".
Life is complicated and confusing enough.
Politicians, scientists and the media....
Who can we trust ?
It's just "messin" with my head.
 The above is all true for me, but any excuse to draw a face really, and play with some colour.

Chakra Tags 4, 5 & 6.

Finding inspiration from yoga and meditation Chakras. I think at the end of last year, for me the world seemed a lot crazier than usual and very "unstable".
On an Instagram post last November, not long after the great Leonard Cohan had sadly left us, I really felt  his words....... "The blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold and it's overturned the order of the soul."
So, searching for alternative ways of creating personal, inner calm, I looked to yoga and meditation and their theory of internal wheels, or sources of energy,  Chakras, that correspond to the massive nerve centres and organs within our body and can effect our physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual states of being.
Always a bit of a sceptic, I became fascinated. Anyway, these ideas inspired me to create some visual tags. My previous post, HERE shows the first three. Here are the next three.
Chakra No.4
The Heart
It's colour is green, and it's located within your heart. It's the centre of love, compassion, harmony and peace.
Created using Finnabair new Patina Effect Paste.

Chakra No.5
The Throat
 It's colour is blue or turquoise and is located within the throat. It's the Chakra of communication, creativity, self-expression and judgement.

Created using Finnabair new "Sparks" Acrylic Paint and beautiful Metallique Waxes.

Chakra No. 6
The Third Eye or Brow Chakra
It's colour is Indigo, and it's located at the centre of the forehead, at eye level or slightly above.This Chakra is used to question the spiritual nature of life. It is concerned with inner vision, intuition and wisdom.

Created with Black Gesso and the new Opal Magic and Metallique waxes.

A step by step of how each tag was made and a full list of materials is up on the Finnabair blog HERE.
