I really love how the colors turned out in my newest painting! The metallic silver paint creates a great contrast to the matte colors and made it feel very art deco to me.
This was actually my first time painting on canvas board in a while, as I prefer the “bounce” (is that thing?) of a wrapped canvas. I primed it with several layers of sanded gesso to give it a smoother texture.
Check out my original design: colored in red, white, and blue (I drew it around July 4th).
I finally had the time to mix up a batch of epoxy and conplete a few projects last night! I traded in my too powerful blowtorch for this handsome heat gun from Ace. It worked really well to remove all of the bubbles from my epoxy pour, with the added bonus of not catching chemicals (or my hair) on fire.
I also love the glossy painting after completely covering it with epoxy. I think I’ll experiment with layering the epoxy to get a bubbled look on my future birch round paintings.
