Untitled – Acrylic on Canvas board – 5×7 inches
Here is a little something I created when playing around with faux encaustic methods. I used some of my gelli-prints to make an abstract landscape. I tore off bits of paper and glued them on with thick gel. When that was dry, I added some ink. And when everything was completely dry, I used one of my faux encaustic mixes to cover the whole painting. You can see some of the lines where I spread it over the painting. Another thing I did was to paint on the back of some of the papers to give them more of a glow. This only works if your gelli-prints are on parchment paper.
This exercise wasn’t to create an amazing piece of art, merely to try a new technique. I made another little landscape by using glue and faux encaustic with some stamping. I gave it to a friend the other night before I got a chance to take a photo. She really liked it and I couldn’t say no. I may have to do another one!
If you don’t seem many posts from me now, it means I am back at work! I enjoyed the time off while it lasted, but I need to pay the bills! Happy Painting People!
