Relics and Reliquaries: Tape Measure
Apply Book Cloth
Mixed-media on archical support
18" sq. x 2" d.
I chose a natural colored book cloth material to surround the reliquary opening. I would later paint it a dark brown. I like to mix textures on my pieces for more visual interest. On the lower left side of the picture is the circular wood strip that will finish the inside of the brass spiral.
