Today's ATC is part of an experiment I did in my laboratory, lol.
Mattboard, Tile adhesive, smoothed with a spatula, pigment solution (like liquid watercolour) and diluted gold acrylic dropped with a dropper while the tile adhesve was still damp, glitter, distress ink, rub on word, white gel pen.
The white gel pen was an afterthought, when the rub on 'R' didn't adhere properly, so I made it into a feature instead!
The other day, I finally got around to doing some experimentation with making PVA/white glue crackle (only because I had a project I needed to finished, which also needed it!) I had watched lots of videos and looked at lots of blogs and decided to just to do it.
I forgot to photograph this step, but on the top half of the page, I used watered down lumiere gold and on the bottom watered down white acrylic. I used my heat gun to hasten the process a bit, but if you hold it too long or too close, the PVA will bubble and this is not really what we want.
ATC), used watered down PVA and this just did not work. You need lots of gooey stuff, so when It dries it will cause the cracking.
Being an artist is a process of continually making something out of nothing.
No experience is a cause of success or failure. We do not suffer from
the shock of our experiences - so-called trauma - but we make out of
them just what suits our purposes.
