|First I taped off the bottom of a wood tray I had picked up at a thrift store.|
After I taped off the sections of the tray I spread joint compound all over it and let it dry. Then peeled the tape off. Then wished I hadn't peeled tape off as I wanted to paint it without getting any paint on the wood. Well this was a happy accident. I re-taped it using wider strips of tape which then gave a nice white border around each square.
|painting the white squares with acrylic paints as well as using Adirondack color wash sprays.|
I like the way this turned out. But I am considering adding a few 3D objects and then covering it in resin. What do you think? Leave it alone or keep going? I'd love to hear your ideas.
Tomorrow I will be presenting at 10 am, "How to tell a story through Found Object Assemblage" at the SCHOLASTIC ART AND WRITING WORKSHOPS: Timberline High School 701 E. Boise Ave.
from 9 am till 4 pm - 1 hour Art and Writing Workshops. All are welcome...the workshops are free. Bring your own brown bag lunch. Invite your friends and peers...this is going to be fun.
Then from 1-3 tomorrow I will be over a Green Chutes with a free make and take table of a Valentine Pin. Stop in and say hi. :)
