Welcome to week 3 of the 50 Canvases challenge. This week I’m challenging you to go dimensional. I am also still working with this week’s art journal challenge of letting Youtube be your inspiration – I have watched tons of videos where people glue a bunch of crap to a canvas, gesso, and then make it fancy with paint, so I decided to go with that!
Things I learned: Spray gesso doesn’t like to dry so quick. Thinner coats would probably help.
It is REALLY satisfying to use something that you’ve been holding onto forever.
Gouache is really hard to pronounce. Especially when it’s supposed to be GAUCHE. Which is one of my favorite words, totally different from gouache (I misnamed Gauche Alchemy as Gouache Academy in the video. Super smartypants), and way easier to pronounce. Especially considering the fact that my grams used to call me gauche a lot.
Glass bottles take gesso and paint surprisingly well!
Here’s this week’s video!
As usual, if you play along, add a link to your blog, flickr, facebook, whatever so that we can give you love!
