Continuing from last week's Mixed Media playing, I think this one is my favorite. This is one of those I really think needs some hardware. Maybe a birdcage charm or something. But since these posts for now are all about the technique, I'm happy with it for now.
I started with something like this:
That is an up-close look at the condition of my Papier Paints by Folk Art. I've had them for about seven years so I guess they are allowed to be clumpy. But as you can tell from the finished product, they still work. I took the fine tip out of the bottle and squeezed out a blob. Then I spritzed it good with water. A junk mail credit card spread the color around in a haphazard fashion just as if I'd used a good acrylic. I'm determined to use up these gunky paints and get them out of the studio so they'll be my base medium for awhile.
