Anyway I digress, the photos above are something we have been working on over the past two weeks in class. Techniques for mixed media. It was basically an excercise on not being scared! This was basically a 'go for it' piece. No theme , just playing with materials and effects.
Used lots of different things in this. Most of which i have used previously and some i haven't.
Plaster of Paris, hot glue, gummed tape, image transfer, sequin waste, torn paper, acrylic paint and lots and lots and lots of pva glue!!
The bottom image is the result from the second weeks work and it looks a lot better and has pulled together really well. Really pleased with the randomness of it and also the colours. Didn't actually realise i was working with a limited colour palette until it was pointed out to me.
Thoroughly enjoyed working on this and can't wait to get started work on the project using these techniques. Just hope I can follow the brief ok.
Thanks for dropping by
