I've recently acquired some new Pebeo materials, so thought I would do an abstract canvas, trying it all out! I've already used the combination of glass paints with ceramic paints on some butterflies (see here ).
I did start this before Christmas, but then the cold struck, with the least of it manifesting in a 3 day headache!
My cold is now manageable (funny how I've taken ownership of "my" cold, but it has been with me for over a week now!), so I've finished this little canvas.
Once the paste had dried it was time for the new stuff - Pebeo Glazing Resin. This is a 2 part mixture, which I slowly poured onto the canvas in a slightly random manner.
It has dried here, so you can see how it holds it shape, and remains 3D.
Everything is still very wet in this picture, and the paint is still moving around.
I wiped the glass paint off some of the resin, so that the acrylic colour underneath would show through.
In this close-up you can see the gold leaf, and the Prisme paint.
Finally, I applied some black Relief Liner.
Very difficult to capture how the light bounces off the resin and the gold leaf, so you will just need a little imagination for that.
Now I know how all this new stuff reacts, I can do another canvas with perhaps a little more control!
The last few early mornings have had stunningly beautiful hoar frosts - even in suburbia! Just looking at the patterns created on cars is mind-blowing. So, I have been inspired to write another Haiku poem, to celebrate the new year.
Frost white December
Come January clothed anew
Hope 2015 is good for you.
