I’ve been playing with stained tissue paper recently. I use TriArt fluid acrylics on white tissue and let the color pour, drip, spatter and spill over a sheet. Then I use the sheets as background.
In this project, I cut pieces of various colors of stained tissue and glued them with polymer medium. After the paper dried, I drybrushed a pear stencil using Titanium White. When that dried, I glazed various colors of fluid acrylics over the pear to create some vibrant effects. Fun!
Don’t forget, if you’re in the area this weekend, drop by my studio for a visit during the Tweed and Area Studio tour. This is the 13th year for the tour and there are, I think, 20 artists on the tour. Check it out at Tweed Studio Tour.
What a beautiful painterly effect Bob! Thank you for sharing the process.
Beautiful work Bob. I like where your vision takes you.
Good luck with the studio tour this weekend. I hope lots of people go through your studio.
ahhhh the polymer medium…..on my table waiting for me to play with……I did similar technique to a fine sheet of paper, that has been pressed into a beeswax pattern…..dropped ink into each shape and wow..the effects were starbursts of colour..duh!…but the effect is quite stunning…waiting for the next inspirational step to come along for that.
All the best with the tour….sell lots!
