Many times I have attempted them only to fail. Today I finally succeeded in one that was at least OK. See it there. YAY. (any advice is welcome)
These are the discards, the failed attempts with the regular gel medium. Well, I should not call them discards because in collage art there is no such thing is there? :) I finally had success using Golden matte medium. I found a bottle I bought over a year ago thinking I was buying gel medium. I didn't know any better then. Good thing cause it really came in handy today.
another experiment: 4 x 5 canvas--I took an old collage, one of my firsts and removed all bumpy elements and gessoed over the previous color. Then I added the tissue paper and some white paint, some sepia ink. a bit of handwriting. I glued on a transparency and added pastels to her lips and eyes....then sprayed with varnish. This was my afternoon. The world outside is calling to me. Dinner to throw together quickly. It's one of those nights.
Have a wonderful week.
