Guest Designer for THINGS TO ALTER - MDF Birdcage

A couple of months ago I was asked to be a Guest Designer for a fabulous MDF company based here in the UK! ... Things To Alter design and cut their MDF in house and it's been exciting working with such different and unique designs!
Altered MDF Birdcage by The Crippled Crafter, featuring Things To Alter, Petal Lu and DecoArt
In addition to the MDF products from Things To Alter I used a variety of materials for this project, including DecoArt Fluid Acrylics and Pinflair Buff-If.

The project also heavily features gorgeous handmade flowers by Petal Lu, so do pop by their shop and see what they have to offer!

So, back to the MDF! I used the following Things To Alter products in my project:

3D Birdcage
Extra Large Cogs
Plain Keys
Ornate Keyhole

Those giant cogs are fantastic! The biggest one is about 6 inches!

I used air dry clay to add dimension to the rat and spider mdf pieces, before painting.

The "feet" of the cage are plastic bottle caps!
