I pulled out Claudine Hellmuth's book ..Collage Discovery Workshop, I'd been wanting to try out the techniques described in her book. Today was my first attempt at creating glazed backgrounds. I needed a surface to start from but didn't have any canvas or mat board around,
I did remember the scrap wood from a renovation project a few years back. Using the 2x4 scrap pieces I covered them book pages and matte gel, then applied Liquitex acrylic paints. At this point they are ready for some collage work.This is a project I took on last night. ..using my ever growing baggie of polymer clay scrap...
...and turned them into these.
Roll polymer clay around wire then impress images with rubber stamps. After baking, fill in the stamped areas with paint and wipe away the excess. When the paint is dry apply Distress Inks and heat set.
