messing about on plaster cloth...
several people have asked if the plaster cloth just sticks to the muslin, and the answer is yes. it's super easy... dip it in water and lay it on the muslin - it dries nice and flat...
collage papers, acylic paint, gel medium, colored pencils
from the last few days in my journal... still doing most of the final drawing with colored pencils, but putting bits of paper and acrylic paint down first.
you can see a little bendy place in the upper left of this page - that's because i didn't put a layer of gel medium down before i started gluing on pieces of paper. the muslin buckles when there's paper on parts of the page and not others if you don't put gel medium down first.
have you seen Amelie? it's very smile making...

"Cezanne, you see, is a sort of God of painting. Is his influence dangerous? What if it is! So much for those who are not strong enough to withstand it! Not to be robust enough to be able to sustain an influence without weakening is proof of impotence."
