Figures - a collage


I started this piece by pasting scraps of paper and napkins onto a sheet of card. As you can see, some of the scraps had figures sprayed onto them using a stencil. I applied a light wash of acrylic paint over the piece and sprayed it with graphite Glimmer Mist to create some cohesion. To give a focal point, I drew around the stencil with a pencil and then went over the lines with Tulip silver dimensional paint to create the main figure. I added the 6 lines and the little gems to finish it.
