Maxwell's Silver Hammer
#2 - The Beatles:Maxwell's Silver Hammer
This one started with the teal paper, meant to represent 'blackboard' ("She tells Max to stay when the class has gone away,
So he waits behind
Writing fifty times "I must not be
So, o, o, o..") and wrote "I must not be so" with a white, chalky pencil. I sprayed the surface with a fixative to keep the writing from smudging.
I wrinkled and softened up brown paper (paper bag) and cut it to size and added the hammer stamp in silver. With a very fine black Micron pen, I edged parts of the hammer to help it stand out from the paper. Last, I added rays in copper paint to give a 'iconic' feel.
