The background arched part painted with white paint, I left some of the canvas showing through. It will be covered with the image. One stencil placed on the lower left side.
Painted tissue paper. This is great stuff to play with, you can stitch it, rip it up and paste it over itself, stamp it, etc. It has a smooth side and a shiny side after you paint it. The steps: 1. place ordinary white tissue on a plastic sheet. I use white garbage bags that I cut the bottom off and then cut up the side so it lays flat, 2. spritz with waters so it lays flat on the plastic and the paint will spread, 3. paint with Golden Liquid Acrylics thinned with water, I add a touch of gel medium to strengthen. 4. Let dry on plastic overnight.
Added a coat of paint to the sides over the dried modeling paste stencils. There is a piece of the painted tissue paper on the left side, not sure I am going to use the paper. Perhaps some but there maybe some lace and other fabric pieces added to the side. And some paint sticks on the stencils. I placed the image and painted tulle on top to see how it will look together. I think this will be a companion piece to Edith Ann for sure.
Stayed tuned. More work coming.
