Altered ship

 Hello creative people!
Today I want to share with you an "altered ship".
Τhis  month, I am invited as a Guest Designer at the  "A Vintage Journey"  blog
The challenge theme is "Altered art".
"We'd like you to get creative with recycled objects in a vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journalling, industrial, timeworn, or steampunk style. Turn something unloved and unwanted into a work of art. Try some repurposing - make something new out of something old, or incorporate an unwanted object into your artwork.  Think tin cans and jars, old bottles, toothbrushes, unwanted packaging - the more inventive the better."
  You can  find the challenge here.

Σήμερα θέλω να μοιραστώ μαζί σας ένα "εναλλακτικό πλοίο"
Αυτό το μήνα είμαι προσκεκλημένη ως Guest Designer στο μπλογκ  "A Vintage Journey".
Το θεμα της πρόκλησης είναι "Αλλαγμένη τέχνη".
"Θα θέλαμε να δημιουργήσετε ανακυκλώνοντας αντικείμενα ..."
  Μπορείτε να βρείτε την πρόκληση και να λάβετε μέρος εδώ.

 I created an altered steampunk ship from recycled objects.
Some may call them junk, but I called them treasures.
So, I filled a ship with altered treasures.

Δημιούργησα ένα εναλλακτικό πλοίο ανακυκλώνοντας παλαιά αντικείμενα.
Για πολλούς αυτά μπορεί να είναι σκουπίδια αλλά για μένα αποδείχθηκαν θησαυρός.
 Έτσι, γέμισα τα αμπάρια του πλοίου με θησαυρούς.


I will try to describe you the whole process with some photos.

 I cut three holes in a piece of mdf wood and I glued three tiny tuna tins behind the holes.

Θα προσπαθήσω να σας περιγράψω τη διαδικασία κατασκευής του πλοίου με φωτογραφίες.

Έκανα τρεις τρύπες σε ένα κομμάτι mdf και κόλλησα μικρές κονσέρβες τόνου πίσω από τις τρύπες.

 I used Heavy Body paste to create texture, air dry clay to create screws 
and I painted the mdf with creamy acrylics.
Into the holes I glued cheesecloth which was painted with Media inks.

Χρησιμοποίησα  Heavy Body paste για να δημιουργήσω υφές, αυτοξηρούμενο πηλό για τις βίδες
και έβαψα το mdf με creamy acrylics.
Μέσα στις τρύπες κόλλησα τουλπάνι και το έβαψα με Media inks.

 Also, I used a piece of wood (from an old bed), a battery basis, 
a steel wire kitchen pot scrubber, a rusted tube tap, burnt lamps,

Χρησιμοποίησα επίσης, ένα κομμάτι ξύλο από παλιό κρεβάτι, βάση γαι μπαταρίες,
σίρμα κουζίνας, σκουριασμένη τάπα σωλήνα, καμμένα λαμπάκια,

a damaged watch, wire, gears, a sea shell, an old chain, a wooden heart,
a spring, small items made of  air dry clay or stencil paste and silicone molds,

ένα χαλασμένο ρολόι, σόρμα, γρανάζια, κοχύλι, μια παλιά αλυσίδα, μια ξύλινη καρδία,
ένα ελατήριο, μικρά αντικέιμενα φτιαγμένα με αυτοξηρούμενο πηλό ή stencil paste 
και καλούπια σιλικόνης,

rusted screws, nails, twine and many others small items.

σκουριασμένες βίδες, σπάγκο και πολλά άλλα μικροαντικείμενα.

Initially, I made the skeleton of the ship and then I filled the three cabins with treasures.

Αρχικά, έστησα το σκελετό του πλοίου και στη συνέχεια γέμισα με θησαυρούς τα αμπάρια.

Into the cabins, I also used heavy body gel matte, 3d balls, 3d powder coarse,
pigments, wax cream  and 7 dots papers.

Στα αμπάρια χρησιμοποίησα, επίσης, heavy body gel matte, 3d balls, 3d powder coarse,
pigments, wax cream  και χαρτιά 7 dots..

I used stencils with heavy body paste to write some numbers and words on the ship.

Χρησιμοποίησα στενσιλ με heavy body paste για να γράψω αριθμούς και λέξεις.

Air dry clay elements were painted with rust effect paints and liquid rust effect.
The butterfly was painted with iron paste.

Τα αντικείμενα από πηλό βάφτηκαν με rust effect paints και liquid rust effect.
Η πεταλούδα βάφτηκε με iron paste.



Πολλά από τα υλικά είναι από το Decomagia HobbyShow.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

  1. Ioulia, you took Alison's suggestion of 'inventive' to a whole new level with this masterpiece!! It is a truly stunning piece of art, beautifully designed and executed, I am in total awe! I love your found treasures, they look so perfectly at home in the 'port holes' you created. The colours are amazing, the rusty butterfly and 'smoke' from the chimney are incredible. I am in love with the whole piece. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful art with us! Anne xx

  2. Simply outstanding, Ioulia - your steampunk ship is a real triumph... Pure delight in seeing those tuna tins brought to light as part of this imaginative creation, and so much wonderful decay in those patina layers and fascinating objects. And I love where you've photographed it too! I'm in Greece in November, and I'm hoping there will still be some sunshine!!

  4. Wow Ioulia, this truly must be steampunk at its very best! Such an amazing inventive and creative project and I love how you photographed it in that beautiful sea side setting!
