Here are the teasers from my last two posts.
I've received quite a few emails and comments on my STONE EFFECT TUTORIAL . So I wanted to share a few more, using various levels of intensity and materials. This little girl is made of plaster. The plaque is made of fiberglass. The bookends are metal. I gave them all a thick coat of white gesso.
The little girl before.
After brushing on the watered down black gesso, I went back over her with another wash of grey, to give her a few more highlights.
The plaque before.
This time I blotted the black gesso and did a drybrush with white, followed by more blotting.
I don't have a before of the bookends, but let me just say that the bright pink and blue weren't doing anything for me. So, with them, after brushing on the black, I went back over them with water. This left a drip effect with more of the white exposed.
I'm halfway done with this next piece. It will have, yet another finish.
The reveal soon, along with more finds and redesigns. Oh yes, after much coaxing, you can now find me on facebook.
