This collage - painting began with a simple
background and few elements.
TIP: Always protect your finished work. I had to apply a spray fixative to this one.
Let this dry before moving on to the next step!
Here's a photo of the collaged background, above (with gel medium below and on top of the pieces), before any of the next steps took place.
Some areas needed to be toned down a bit, so I applied a thin wash of white gesso in places.
|When the gesso was dry, I used acrylic ink too!|
I sprayed the acrylic ink through stencils to add interest. Rather liked the piece at that stage, but really wanted to go on with a death's-head figure and some stamping, soooo....
