James Dean Swarovski crystal portrait

Postby CrystalDesignedArt » Fri May 24, 2013 9:57 am

This is the first artwork I produced using Swarovski crystal rhinestones, each glued in placed onto an acrylic base. I have always loved this image of James Dean, which I think is more interesting as he's not actually looking at the camera.

The crystals add a dramatic effect as they are constantly glistening, giving the final image a beautiful and ever changing appearance.

Gorgeous. Great subject and well treated. Purple can be iffy sometimes. James Dean works with it. Another incredible application of creativity. Mosaic patterns in crystal. I never thought of it, which I think all the darn time, and you got it going on way before I could conceive it. hahah... too cool. I just followed/liked your FaceBook page with my personal profile. Also I have a page for my artsy article-ness https://www.facebook.com/IOUart, look it up if you are curious.

Thanks. It's one of those things where you do not know if it will work until you have pretty much finished it. I'm just glad it did work out and other people like it too : )
