Day 1was mostly prep work - using Joint Compound (like you'd use on walls to cover nail holes) on both sides of a canvas bag, a brush roll and pieces of muslin. We'll be working on those master pieces in Day 2. We also worked on a canvas. The prep work for this was just to cover one side with Gesso. Then we started with our creations - using back paint to start a back ground with words, stencils, etc. On top of that we added paint more joint compound and glaze.
Here's the start...
|At this stage it doesn't have the final joint compound and glaze.|
|I added the joint compound - splotches plus I used some stencils to create raised images - letters and words. They are a little easier to see in the final picture.|
|Finished and ready to hang.|
I can't wait to start Day 2. I'll post pictures tomorrow.
This was so much fun that I want to share. I'll be planning a class in the near future - stay tuned for details. If you are interested, email me!
Happy stamping...and creating!
