A bit ofplastic

Today's picture for T for Tuesday is one I did a while ago.
This was drawn by scratching into a piece of acetate (overhead transparency) that had been painted black and allowed to dry.  It is of a vintage teapot (my favourite kind).  After I had finished it, I sealed the paint with some matte medium so it wouldn't flake off.  It was interesting to be removing paint, rather than adding it.
Happy T day!

  6. Scratch art seems to complicated for my brain--like doing things backwards. Block printing is like that, too. I don't think my brain can see that way--LOL! Great job. Happy T-Day! :)

  8. Scratch art is so fun, I just introduced the GDs to it this weekend. I'll bring them back later and show them this tea pot. The detail is amazing.
    Happy T-day

  9. I like "subtractive" art processes, too. It feels a little bit like magic to remove a layer and create an image. Your teapot looks super. Happy T Day!
