A saint sleeps not on soft beds...
I have been playing with a new (to me) medium- crackling medium!
On paper it dosn't have the same effect as it does on wood but it's been interesting to play with.
Crackling medium works by shrinking and cracking the top layer of paint, revealing the colour beneath.
This photo is just part of the A3 size work I did ..the rest wasn't quite so appealing but it was all about the expermentation so I don't mind.I think once mastered the technique could have quite a lot of potential for adding something different to collages, I seem to find it hard sticking to just glue and paper!
This is a photo of my eldest at the Jim Cooper exhibition, the kids got to make these awseome masks! Jim's work can be seen behind her.
