May 2021 - Life is about creating yourself - by Marina Ignatova

Hello friends!

This month we are trying out a new interesting sgraffito technique. To be honest, I encountered it for the first time, I read a lot of things, I learned, although the essence of sgrafitto is familiar to us all from childhood. This is the scraping of the upper layer, for the development of the lower one. I interpreted it somewhat in my own way (as a creative person, I can afford it). On the scrap paper, I put dried twigs of thuja on top. I taped it down so nothing would move. On top, I applied a texture paste mixed with impasto paint with a palette knife. I waited a little while for the paste to set. Then I removed the twigs, and voila, the bottom layer (drawing on scrap paper) became visible.

Also, I decided to support the botanical theme in the decor as well. The dried sprig with flowers was covered with varnish and acrylic paints.

Thank you Riikka Kovasin for such an exciting task of the month! It was cool to learn and try something new)))
Inspiration to all!
Hugs, Marina
