I didn't think I'd have any new art to post today, but last night at 8:00 I started playing around with some technics. And this is what I ended up with. I punched circles and a square (then cut in half into triangles), out of a frozen entree box. I also cut out some strips. Then I glued them onto the base, a piece of frozen pizza cardboard (my old standby). Then I crumpled up white tissue paper, uncrumpled it, and glued it on top. Then I brushed lots of gel medium over that, in different directions, because I wanted to give it more texture. After it dried, I painted the whole piece with Moccasin Brown acrylic paint. After that dried, I used my finger to rub on different colors of Lumiere metallic paints, to highlight the shapes and the texture. To finish it off I painted on a coat of Krylon Triple-Thick Crystal Clear Glaze, which made the colors pop and further highlighted the texture.
I'd like to experiment more with this technic, but I think I'll glue fabric over the shapes and see how that turns out. Maybe some light fabric such as muslin, so the shapes will be well defined. I like how this postcard turned out. I've always liked using crumpled tissue paper for texture.
