Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share another mixed media project with you. This is one of those happy accident turned favorite pieces. Lots of texture and layers went into this piece.

After a layer of gesso had dried I used thick acrylic paint to add more texture. Layered over that are two shades of brown applied with the brayer. Love the texturing the brayer creates, it’s a speedball brayer of the soft rubber, smell like school plimsolls but works oh so well.

The white is gesso or texture paste, both were around and not sure  which I used now as you can probably guess that was added using bubble wrap. Great texture from the plastic in the bubbles 🙂

This is another one that I like too much to add more too right now. It has joined others in the pile which may later be used as a base for further development with text or images but I’m enjoying it as it is right now.

Have you tried brayer meets acrylic paint yet? I highly recommend it, lots of messy fun play.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Billie 🙂
