Play with Techniques

I love to see how different surfaces take techniques and I hadn't played with Delight very much. So in the spirit of the season, I rolled out Delight and used my Halloween cookie cutters to make little skulls.


Skull cookie cutters
Micro Beads
Curry powder

Left to right: Skull coated with polymer medium followed by a wash of Quinacridone Nickol Azo Gold when dry. My favorite. Clear glitter with typewriter keys, black with a metallic pearl rub, and burnt umber with curry powdered applied while wet. Now, I have to run to the fabric store. I think collars out of netting would be cool.

Part of being an artist is being a mad scientist.
