Masks, stencils and turps.

The second post of the day.
So this was done with one of my darker gelli plate backgrounds - the one one the right.

  1. I sealed the background using gel medium.
  2. When dry I painted over with distress paint. It needed two coats.
  3. I put on the stencil of the lady and with turps on a cotton wool bud rubbed off the paint. Be careful not to rub too hard as the turps will go through all layers of paint.
  4. I half outlined the picture and added the word fashion

I now stink of turps but I am pleased with the result.
