Yesterday’s artist was Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, again someone whose work I love. The piece she inspired us to create starts with a layer of various mediums so I had to leave it to dry overnight given our summer’s not exactly hot! Although this was scary to do – it involved pouring thin black paint right over the top of the previous layers – I would certainly use this process for something like a journal cover.
I used Golden garnet gel, Golden light modelling paste, Galeria black lava texture gel, Galeria medium grain gel and Golden gloss polymer for the initial layer. The colours are Golden fluid acrylics, Reeves copper paint, Golden Micaceous Iron Oxide fluid acrylic and Zinc White fluid acrylic.
