Prepping to Paint, Part 2
I'm progressing slowly on this because a number of other projects have priority, but I wanted to post a photo of the second step on this project/experiment. After "fixing" the powdered charcoal and ink, I then applied a generous coat of white glue over the canvases. While the glue was still wet, I painted a fairly even coat of cadmium red medium acrylic on top of the glue. As it dried, the glue pulled and cracked the paint, exposing the charcoal beneath. I really enjoy watching the random beauty that occurs through this process. Now I just need to figure out what to paint on them.
