Working with Staining Colors in Fluid Acrylics
I went back to the book "Celebrate Your Creative Self " today and experimented with fluid acrylics. I applied my colors - quinacridone gold, and turquoise straight from the bottle - the gold in shapes and the turquoise in drips and dots. Then I drew a line of quinacridone crimson across the top, and using a wide putty knife, scraped down through the paint - cleaning off the putty knife after each swipe. The fluid acrylics stain the illustration board. I cut some designs out of erasers and stamped black designs on the bottom work - and also embellished it with black ink designs. These works are both, so far, nameless! I had a lot of fun and learned a lot from this project. What a great book!
