May 2021 - Layers of colour - by Olga Heldwein

I have to admit I did struggle with that theme a lot . because I’m impatient . I made a point of using sgraffito technique and decided to make  multi layer background . Idea was to layer up some colors through stencils and reveal my background through sanding off. I have to admit IF you wait until each layer is completely dry before applying next one and you will completely dry and wait before sanding effect is AMAZING !!! But it took couple tries to get to that point . Patience pay off.  Lesson learned. 

For my texture I used up slightly dried up Heavy gesso leftovers ( It does stain so beautifully with Liquid Acrylics !!) all leftover gesso I used up on fabric Prima flowers to make them sculpture like and I used Liquid acrylics to add some variety and vintage look.
