Experimenting in texture


I decided to try using Golden Molding paste and a stencil on yupo.
I let the paste dry a couple of days and then sprayed the whole thing with
water and then used my watercolors.  Interesting result with lots of texture.  
The paint settled in the low areas giving dimension and deeper color in those areas.
Has anyone else used this paste?  I would be interested in your results.

  6. A beautiful experiment. I used the paste once on a picture of Marie Antionette. I used it for the curls in her hair.

  8. Wonderful! I have used this molding paste - and I use it to "sculpt" flowers and foliage with my palette knife. I use it on masonite and then paint when dry with acrylics and sometimes oils. Happy PPF :)
