5th Layer


As I was out last night and all today, I did not have time to post this yesterday, at this stage I would normally start building light layers of Gold-finger, but decided on one of the pieces to put a thin layer of Gold Interference Medium, all over, it lightened it quite a bit, and I decided it needed a contrast I had some Teal Dye-na-flow on the desk so dropped some randomly and scrubbed it in with a fat brush, even though I say it myself its gorgeous, the colours shimmer.
Before I left for work this morning I gave the other piece a spray of Moonglow spray ink in Violet, it hasn't made any difference and sunk right in, shame I was hoping to see a nice effect when I got home from work.

Is it done? It is so beautiful. I was wondering if ever you regret putting on a layer of color and wish you would have left it the way it was.

Amazing Carol. Looks really good on screen so can only imagine how wonderful it must look for real.
Its been really good seeing your different stages - but I bet you haven't finished yet have you?

These colors are yummy. My fave color. I too am curious as to what you would do if you regreted adding a layer of color to a piece.

as ever Carol its fantastic but I do wish everyone could see it "real" like I have, the glow of colours and texture is indescribably yummy if there is such a description!

The colours are tremendous Carol. I have been very impressed by your work and as I am only just getting back into all things creative I have been inspired by some of your pieces. The sewing case is an excellent use of bondwebbed velvet I must seek out by samples!
Can you tell me how to organise a link to my flickr account I have failed miserably so far!

lovely effects!. You mention the interference medium in gold which I hadn't realised existed but have just been given one in blue. Only had a little play so far on dark felt...it really does glow!
mmm.. what will you do with it next?

Carol said...

I am just loving seeing your progress - it's wonderful.
