Today I am going to add another layer to this piece. I am sad about it because I love the pastel and neon colors. But this is only layer one!
When I created this layer, I added painted tissue papers and bits of trash. I didn't think too much as I went, just focused on creating texture and little diversions along the canvas.
|This is actually a blob of wire covered with a piece of clear vinyl. I have no idea how this will pan out.|
|I like the sparklers box colors and graphics. Sparklers infuse fun, excitement, cheesiness, and a little bit of danger.|
Time to add another layer of paint. I use acrylics. I would like to use oil because the end result is so beautiful. But oils are more expensive, are super messy, and take forever to dry.
I've decided to work in shades of red to cover the piece. I am thinking about rust and old metal signs.
I have covered the whole piece now and I feel uneasy about it, but tomorrow I will sand it and see if anything magical pops through.
