My Resene Upcycling Award entry

Christine from Addington

I repurposed a large 6ft art piece I painted, it was not selling, "the first image" so i decided to up-cycle it to a new art piece all made from recycling materials and Resene landfill paint plus new Resene Gold Metallic paint which was "Gold Dust Solid Gold" and "Duck Egg Blue" Paint. The white background was a landfill paint I got which was "Zylone Sheen Waterborne Low Sheen White"The flowers are made from melting down plastic bags and shredding them down to a powder, also shredding down cardboard boxes that are also laden with plastic mixed into the cardboard boxes, then placing them in a large barrel, adding in PVA glue, Cornflour, landfill paint and some water, mix thoroughly, then spread out on large glass sheets until nearly dry, then cut and shape, I cut and shaped them into flower petals and glued onto the canvas. I also spread the mixture on the whole canvas to create a textured background and let dry. I then painted it and produced an art piece that seems to have people when they come over saying WOW amazing.
