Moved Through It

I finally got to some artwork that i’d been thinking on. i used to do a lot of collage type work, working with letterpress stamps and ink, ephemera, different types of paper. i love working with layers, it’s really satisfying. finding something interesting, like an old photo – and work to both hide and reveal it at the same time.

this time around i used a nice woodpanel – which is the best way to go so far. even the thickest stock of paper can’t hold up with all the layers of polymer and paint, always ends up buckling and warping. i also used a new acrylic polymer for a clear glue/coating, and then also mixed it with paints which gave me really nice transparent colouring. i really like using Iridescent Bright Gold (Fine) with it.
