Patina and Vertigris




I am taking an online class called Patina and Vertigris and so far it has been an "experience".  Stepping out of my comfort zone.....  The bottom picture is where i started and hated so much brassy gold so I tamed it down and then things just began happening.  I am also working on a larger canvas than I normally do so that in itself has created a bit of fear.....  I am enjoying the process and I have no idea where I will end up......  Tonight I added a layer of modeling paste on the left hand side and bottom of the top canvas and applied a Hieroglyphic stamp to see how it would imprint.  Something else that is new for me.  Tomorrow when it is dry I am going to paint it and then add a patina to it.  I think I am going to do bronze and the teal color and then go over the top with some black......  I have a 2nd canvas that is waiting for me done in silver, teal and black and it will need some enhancing also ..........
