Bottle-Cap Mosaic Collect bottle caps and rough up back with sand paper and x-acto knife to help glue, stick to canvas. Glue caps on with Collage Pouge. Glue smaller caps inside larger caps with a plastic glue. Start in middle of canvas. May need support in middle of canvas so it won't sag while it is drying. May fill some of the caps with acrylic paints. Let dry for several days.

Allison Stilwell is the artist who does the "Recycled Heads" found in Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. She has a short video of how she uses plastic shopping bags, melted with a head gun, to make the base for her heads. Then gel medium and decoupage on top.
