I've been busy exploring the possibilities of using Acrylic paints and Gel Mediums to create an encaustic effect but my skills are obviously very green. It didn't help that the tutorials I was trying to watch weren't streaming well and I got frustrated and decided to just try my own thing. As a result, this experiment is going in lots of directions but I'm having fun with the materials and trying to remain mindful (always) of the composition.
I've used a variety of mediums here including Matte Heavy Gel, different color tissue papers, acrylic paint, acrylic paint thinned to a stain, string, and a couple of metallic paints (gold guache and bronze patio paint) rubbed into some of the textures which I thought created a neat effect.
I think I've exhausted the mediums and it is time to think about subject matter.
