Day 12: Gesso washing to tone down a page
Ok, today is a very important technique if you ever make a page that you: 1)hate or one that is 2) too loud. I did BOTH to the one above after I had the bubble wrap technique for you.
Gesso is a wonderful medium that looks like white paint, but it's so much more fun! I have another technique I want to show with it that I won't spoil now, but today we will make a Gesso Wash. I use a canning jar, so I can put a lid on it and keep if for a little while! I did about 50% each, water and gesso here. If you want MORE coverage, use less water. Less coverage? use more water:
Next I used a Coffee Break Design Stencil I got at the Heirloom show a couple of weeks ago to sponge on some yellow acrylic paint 'suns':
Thanks so much for joining me on this journey! I'm having a LOT of fun playing!
May God bless your ART...and your HEART!
