Pele, Goddess of fire and volcano

Describe your item and its condition before the transformation

I had a left over piece of foam insulation. 

Explain what you did to turn your item from Trash to Treasure

I’m building a backyard Disney inspired bar. What better then to have the enchanted tiki room gardens Pele. I drew her shape on the insulation and cut out her features, layered them on top and glued them in place. Next I covered her in pool patch cement. Applied a primer, then enhanced it using acrylics. For later dramatic effect, plumbed a smoke machine behind the wall, leds, and a strobe machine to erupt in anger.

I used Rust-Oleum rusty metal primer because I got a lot of it. It’s also real good as a base to make things look rusted.
