|Valentangle 1 - with Gourdgeous-like Hearts, Flowers, Molygons, |
Mooka, Tipple, Spirals, Paradox, and lot's of Rounding, Shading
and Auras, added the beet juice, and water color pencils
My sister is a jeweler and she Anneals metal (heats it) to strengthen and harden the final metal pieces. This same process must work with paper. I used a heavy/toothy velum bond. so I was pleased it accepted being painted and heated so well.
I did use red watercolor pencil to enhance the beet juice coloring but I did use the beet juice as my flow medium with a brush for the watercolor pencils. I also added a little wash of coffee to the center portion this morning. This is a result of many layers of media and washes.
I taught a wonderful Zendala class this past week and this piece was a result of the snowflake Mandala template creation process. This was the result of my snowflake tracing example which grew and modified as I worked on it this week. I really didn't like the way it was going but I kept at it all week. I added hearts and let the tangles talk to me and tell me what to do next. The result is something that I am happy with but the process was so much fun.
|Valentangle 2 - String #131|
