A little while ago I was playing with some paint techniques on various types of papers. I decided to make the papers into a book, and covered it with leather, with a couple of teeth (fake) in the binding!
Here is another view, showing the medallion made by stamping into air-dry clay with a text stamp, and painting with Lumieres.
|This is the inside cover|
|Lots of paint layers, stamping and tissue|
|Pieces from my desk, plus some stenciling|
The next spreads are still in the UFO stages!
The techniques are mainly paint spread with a credit card, painted again, then stamped on with foam stamps and water, then scraped again.
|Right side has gold stamped on the painted page, with a piece of weblike paper, the left page has glare!|
|Water splotches, then scraped|
|The right page has gesso, with a round object squished into it when wet.|
