Pear trioI’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.
