Surface experiments

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to attend three classes with Dina Wakley: surface experiments; silhouettes and faces. Over the next couple of weeks I will post some of the things I made.

In the first class we created some 'tiles'. These were wooden squares, prepped with plaster and then covered with gesso. We then did various things to them.

For this first one I applied acrylic paint and scraped patterns into it. I then covered it with melted beeswax, did some more scraping and added some more paint.

For this second I applied acrylic paint and then added layers of stamped tissue paper with matte medium. Then came the circles of acrylic paint and a layer of beeswax. I then added a focal image (the face), also on tissue paper, by layering it on with beeswax.
