Overview

Discover a curious world of assemblage with projects that have a story to tell!

Step inside Altered Curiosities, where a wisdom tooth gets its own shrine, a honeybee lights up the room and a taxidermy eye becomes the eye in the back of your head. As author Jane Wynn shares her unique approach to mixed-media art, you'll learn to alter, age and transform odd objects into novel new works of your own creation.

Step-by-step instructions guide you in making delightfully different projects that go way beyond art for the wall—including jewelry, hair accessories, a keepsake box, a bird feeder and more—all accompanied by a story about the inspiration behind the project. You'll also learn to:

  • Find your personal symbols and incorporate them into your work.
  • Alter toy figures to create curious new creatures.
  • Master simple soldering techniques that take you beyond the soldering iron.
  • Apply beautiful patinas and etchings to brass and copper.
  • Transform cast resin into pieces that look like metal.
The endless possibilities of assemblage are yours to discover! Let Altered Curiosities inspire you to create a new world that's all your own.
