Vintage Mademoiselle Terracotta Plaque - Wall Hanging

Anabia Jamshed

Unlocking nostalgia - a window into an era signifying feminism and womanhood, courage, beauty and grace. The choice of colours are sure to make one travel back in time; signifying the French revolution era during the 20th century and beyond. It was a mix of feelings really when I was creating this piece – a touch of enchantment, mystery, pride, contentment and grace – yet with a captivating vibe of melancholy; as if a window directly into the heart. I used antique wax paste along with hints of pure and rich gold wax paste to replicate the look of old, rusty and vintage locks and chains – almost as if it were a precious relic jumping out of the revered era. The subtle blended colours trailing along with hints of sepia serve as a perfect encapsulation of the era in context.

Talking about the process in stages, I use decoupage as my base for my art pieces and then to make them 100% waterproof I embellish with Acrylic paints, wax paste finally coating with thick waterproof varnish layers - subsequently making them potential heirlooms. I enjoyed the varnishing stage while creating this one the most, as it was almost as if I were preserving a ‘moment’ in its most raw and untainted form.
