With today's artwork, I'm back to things I haven't done for a while. I always loved to make layouts, but recently I have focused on other projects.
As you'll see on the video (link below) I glued the basic paper to the wooden base. I don't like when my layout is wrinkled, and this is a perfect solution. Of course, I didn't forget about clear gesso, thanks to this the paper is more waterproof and paints don't soak in.
I used here amazing products - Icing pastes and new colors from Impasto paints. Both of these work great with new stencils. These designs are awesome - so many small details, just beautiful.
Impasto paints are very universal. I used them as usual paints, but also for stencils or painting resin elements.
All mechanicals are just great for a vintage project like this one. To give them more "old" look, I rubbed everything with white gesso. Use an almost dry brush to add just a little bit.
Reach for forms you have not created for a long time, discover them again. I hope that my video will inspire you to do your own thing.
