ATC workshop ... Lesson 3

This week was magazine paper techniques. The first one you layer some images for the background and then layer slices of your composition, add a little color and finish your edges. I just sanded my edges. The second one you paint your magazine image with white gesso in a cross hatch pattern making sure to leave it a little transparent. Then you define areas with an ink marker and then add paint to alter and highlight. The last one was really cool. You just dot the image with glue here and there to define the image. When that is dry you just rub it down with Never Dull metal polish. Then you replace the color you just wiped off with pastels. I also finished the edges by brushing with a rust inkpad.

Excellent...I tried the gesso one but ended up covering the image too much, couldn't get the crosshatching done lightly enough argghh - I will try again though.
Really great ATCs Inka
