A background that came about from gessoing and painting over a piece that was in need of reworking.
Wood icing used with Jessica’s Hebrew Calligraphy with Hamsa Stencil.
Once the wood icing had dried I put the stencil back on top so that the paint only went where I wanted it to go in the next step.
Using a dry brush I painted the top of the wood icing a deep blue.
I smeared paint on with my fingers.
After the last layer dried, I smeared another layer of paint.
Another touch or two of paint. Once it was dry, I brayered on a thin layer of white paint to pop the design.
The wood icing created lots of places and spaces for the paint and color to pile up.
I was so in love with this stage that there is another piece just like this one drying in my studio. I want one to cut up and make ATC backgrounds for another project!
I thought this piece was all finished until I read the quote. Book paper, paint, and glitter and now I think it really is finished…
