I got a small canvas, painted it with black gesso, and set about arranging my pieces. To the happy meal toy pieces, I added a button battery, some miscellaneous watch parts, a Prima Art bolt, and a little man. After gluing, I painted everything with black gesso and got out my waxes and rub 'n buff.
You can get inspiration for a project anywhere - even a kids meal toy! So the next time you're driving through a fast food restaurant, get yourself a kids meal....but don't tell your kids. 😋
