This is a card made for a dental laboratory that we collaborate with at work (I'm a dental hygienist). We were invited to a party to celebrate their new office space and I wanted to make a card to wish them good luck. I got this crazy idea to create a 'tooth manufacturing machine' on my card....LOL
The focal point is made with an old retired impression tray from work and a recycled bulb. The pipes are made using a Tim Holtz die, chipboard and fluid acrylic paint from Deco Art.
Metal decorations from Prima and Tim Holtz except for the recycled parts from a stud tire at each corner and the small ruler at the left hand side that is from Michaels I think.
One panel is made with watercolor paper, distress oxides and crackle glaze and the other is made with watercolor paper, fluid acrylic paints, 3D embossing folder from Tim Holtz, crackle glaze and distress ink black soot and metallique wax from Finnabair/Prima. Between these panels there are one layer of corrugated paper covered with white gesso and distress paint.
This is how the machine works (LOL): you start the machine with the black on/off switch at the right hand side then you put the impression tray with alginate and the magic powder from the small glass bottle in to the machine. When the machine is working the bulb will light up...and if you wait a few days (7...8...9) and then turn on the wheel (in this case the faucet knob from Tim Holtz) the teeth will come out from the pipe on the top and rest products from the production are dripping from the lower pipe...
I hope the ugly teeth coming out of the machine won't horrify anyone. I promise they are not real. They are made of resin and colored with fluid acrylic paint.
