Week 21 of the Surface treatment workshop is about embedding items into a work surface. Embedding helps to create interesting textures that seem to be custom made to a piece of art work.
I did just one sample for this week and kept it very simple…,
I attached a piece of lace fabric to some sketchbook paper with modelling paste and then blended the edges of the fabric into the surface with a bit more modelling paste. I left it to dry and painted stripes of colour over it. The fabric has blended into the paper quite well. Here’s a closer view…
The edge of the fabric blended quite seamlessly into the work surface….
The touch of sparkle is a touch of pearl mica in a shade called Diamond Dust – it’s one of my favourites….
This sample will be added to my growing pile of samples ready for gluing into my STW Sketchbook…..
