For this project I started with a copied picture of Puck, already subjected to Jenny's transfer technique (we'll let you all in on the acrylic transfer secret in a later blog), a 16x20 canvas, gloss heavy gel, and some great brown toned acrylic paints.
Then using the gloss heavy gel mixed with the acrylic paint colors, I created an interesting background for my picture.
Then again using the gloss heavy gel, I attached the picture to the canvas. This is just like how decopage is used to create a collage. After attaching the picture I went back over the image with the gloss heavy gel mixed with just a little bit of paint to sort of blur the edges. Here's the finished product:
Who knew how fun and versatile those acrylic mediums could be! This one is especially interesting because it makes your paint colors transparent for awesome layering.
More Glee-full stuff coming up!
