I guess I am in love with black and metallic colours, oh yeah and recycling. I had a 6×6 canvas and a few found objects that I wanted to give a new life, here is the result:
Would you like to see what my found objects were? Well let’s go step by step: first I had a layer of lace, then a piece of burlap and some waxed rope. Then I had a piece of zipper, a bottle cap, a burnt out bulb, some nails, other construction materials, 8 found fallen on the street, and trimming mats. Voilà:
Enchanting treasures, now all these got a layer of black gesso as a cover:
After it was drying it got two colour layers: pearlescent liquid acrylics and inka golds.
Pearlescent liquid acrylics: platinum pink, galactic blue, autumn gold and sundown magenta. Inka golds: rose quartz, aquamarine, mint green and yellow gold.
I am sharing my canvas with Mixed media place Creative Gym – Exercise #5 black background + all the colours of the rainbow.
