Talk All Day Pills by ArtlessHmmmm Talk All Day Pills by ArtlessHmmmm
Clear Perspex box - lettering spraypainted through a specially made stencil. Box contains varnished liquirish bullets and smarties to symbolise the 365.25 talk all day capsules...

This piece is based in identity for i'm a talker - and it's a standard joke. So it made sense to make a piece of art symbolising the sharing of my talent. The stencilling is all modelled upon real pill boxes. The purple stripe (tho it's hard to see in the photo) & black writing represent the colours i use/wear most. While the bright coloured sweets represent my wacky creative colourful approach to life and are varnished to make them brighter and all the more appealing. The brand name LB is sort of my initials.

The piece however is a bit soiled from being on display in a school where kids don't know the meaning of looking with their eyes!

Wish id found someway of making better stencils tho - cos some of the paint got underneath it leaving fuzzy edges to the words! Did take hte worst of the smudge of with turps tho! But i think the varnish sent me a bit high in the art exam! Was my exam piece for AS level. Still smells strongly of varnish now!

You can't really tell from the picture that it's smudgy. What did you use for stencils?

Hey, I didn't know you could get stencil adhesive :) That's pretty useful :)
Plastic would have been better I guess but it worked pretty well - always stand by your bottle of turps! ;)

Why thankyou - i thought so too - tho my fingers didnt quite agree by the time i'd bin glue gunning the smarties etc down one at a time for over 5hrs. They went on mutiny and i lost all feeling in my two pointer fingers for at least a week - then they just felt all mushy for another few weeks!!!! lol My own fault tho!
