Here's the sketch of my girl for the piece
A few papers to choose from for collaging the girl
After collaging a few pieces, I had to re-sketch the drawing on the collaged papers. Then I watered down acrylics and started painting the background
Then I used this technique I saw in the book. You know, the Taking Flight book I'm all into right now! Well, I can tell you now, this was not the technique for me to use for this piece. It's not working for me, and I'm thinking I may have to get my electric sander out and sand it off!
And this is how it looks now that the molding paste has dried and has been washed around the edges with some color. I like it!
If this was paper, I wouldn't be fretting, but it's MOLDING PASTE! I can't just tear it off or paint over it. urrrrrrrrrrgh, Where's my electric sander?
Post Script: And yes, I know she only has one wing. I've got something in mind to collage in the wing. That is, once I figure out what to do with that molding paste *hee hee*
