somerset studio magazine had a technique by lisa bebi that
i wanted to try. it marries photography and painting
using shaving cream of all mediums.
he acrylic paint is mixed into shaving cream and
applied with a palate knife like cake frosting and brush.
once you add the
acrylic the shaving cream tuns to yummy pastel colors.
the first layer is a azure gold. after it dries more colors are added.
i experimented with drying the first layer with a craft dryer,
scraping half dried medium off, rubbing it in with my fingers,
starting with a thin first layer, more saturated paint mix.
i am not comfortable with it but don't expect to be
after only one sitting. i have been thinking of
my sweet and beautiful mother so tried the
technique on a painting of her. i am happy with this.
there are more photos with layer one air drying naturally.
i will work with on another day and report back.
from an anthropologie catalog
i am happy.
