Hands-on boosts confidence to try other projects
Black and lacy, the two Squareathon prompts for today.
I’ve obsessed the past three days with how to get a lace pattern onto paper and tried two methods: 1. spray adhesive as a resist with a watercolor wash, and 2. spray paint. The short video below shows watercolor over adhesive.
I reused the sticky lace under a coat of spray paint and it tore the paper coming off in one spot. The adhesive was applied too thick, I think.
The dry lace with spray paint gave the crisper results. Another short video below shows spray paint over lace.
More experimentation is in order. I envision painting a large abstract incorporating some of these lace pattern transfer techniques.
Have you any experience with using lace in your work? I’d love to hear about it! Send me an email.
