More of my little fossil paintings. I made a homemade stamp by gluing pieces of thin foam sheet onto scrap pieces of wood and stamped it into wet texture paste (like molding paste). Instead of leaving a clear imprint or “deboss” like I’d planned, it left these line patterns as i pulled it off. Whatever it takes to explore a new surface! The Interference paints (Golden) show off their duotone splendor when you paint them over a darker (dry) color. Instant treasure from the chest at the bottom of the sea!
Here I got some gold paint into the bargain, and washed some opaque paint over the right side. Looks a bit like aged leather?
On the brighter side, perhaps some lichen and wildflowers.
See how gritty this surface is? Very absorbent too, like watercolor paper, and sculptable, stamp-able, and very light weight and fun to use. Craters of the moon, stalactites or maybe a rusty canon.
