trying something new....



Carrie Joy Art has a really neat video on using Golden Crackle Paste. It gives you step by step on how to transfer photos to a fresco surface and how to embellish and seal. I tried it when I was too tired and forgot some of her sage advice. I will watch and try again but wanted to show my little picture anyway. One thing I do have to say, don't use canvas. Don't know where my mind was when I did it, but Carrie did help me save it from all flaking off by coating with gel. Photo is from an old school picture I picked up in Ventura.

I have used canvas with the paste. What happened? Maybe it was too much paste?

perhaps too much paste? maybe, but it just kept bending....the canvas was not solid, but stretched across the wooden box.
