Having never worked with Silks Acrylic glazes before I was in need of tips and inspiration and visited the Luminarte Blog and the amazing work of Jodi Ohl. I was also really curious how Silks would perform on the absorbent surface of Art Squares.
What a blast! Because the Art Squares are matboard weight they can tolerate layer upon layer of the glazes, and even a middle layer application of standard white acrylic white. What is so cool about the Silks glazes is they have a sparkly quality when dry, from bits of mica, and their texture can be manipulated with a bit of heat.
This was created by assembling the 9 white Inchie Squares (with a light adhesive) on a work surface and painting away with different layers of color...drying in between each layer. The Impress stamped images were added at the end using Brilliance graphite black ink. I am definitely a newbie when it comes to mixed media but find myself more and more drawn to this very fun and creative process.
Hope to see you at Impress Tukwila on Saturday from 10 to noon!
