This week on Life Book 2012 was a Workshop with Tamara Laporte using paper collage on watercolour paper. Tam uses gel medium to stick her collage paper down, but unfortunately I don't have any, so I used PVA glue, which gets a bit messy!! The idea was to paint with watersoluble crayons over the collage, except for the 'figure'. So you could actually change the figure entirely, you use blended acrylics with the crayons (I think - it is some time since I looked at the video!!) Anyway, as I got so messy with the PVA, and knowing it dries clear, I thought I would paint a watered down gesso all over it before I started to paint (BAD idea!)
Till next time.
