Old Jigsaw puzzle and some multi-media snowflakes

Hi Friends , this is my second project for Lessology toy story challenge . I have used some old jigsaw puzzles with a lot of pieces missing to recycle for this project.





Started with ..................




First I tried making the snowflakes in pristine white with some real snow effect using thermacol which you can see in these pics. It looked nice but I was not entirely happy with the effect so more layers were added. I would like to share a tip  here...... it you want to try using thermacol/ styrofoam, add talcum powder to the grater, your hands and the container to cut the static. If you use any face/baby/dusting powder it is very easy to work with otherwise it will keep flying all over. . 

Well so after Gesso, tissue, layering with thermocol layers and acrylic colors in silver, gold, acrylic gloss medium, sequins and more colors, you get................

 I loved this antique gold kinda look the best....
