Altered Brush Project or…A Heart of Gold

A couple weeks ago I received a brush in the mail by Donna Downey asking me do to something fun for her studio with it. Donna is currently running a fun Altered Brush Project and she just opened it up to the public as she wants to fill the walls …and probably because artists are slow…Like me – LOL- it took me a while to tackle the task ;)

 

The beginning was easy as I knew I wanted to add texture to the brush

 

But then my first idea using those colors wasn’t the way I wanted it the next morning

 

So I over sprayed following my often said advice “if it is ruined, just paint over again ” and I decided for this

 

supplies: Liquitex Gesso, Liquitex Spray Paints, Liquitex Heavy Gel Medium, Liquitex Acrlylic Inks, Clay, Canvas Fabric, Cheese Cloth

 

It was fun and definetly a challenge to do something creative on an unusual surface :)

“What was the most unusual surface you have created something on?”

Have an amazing day

    That texture came out SO COOL!! Yeah, I can’t think of any unusual surface I’ve created on. Even digging back into childhood, the best I can come up with is we made fish by gathering a bar of soap up into a piece of tulle netting (the fluff of which was the fish’s tail) and sticking pins through sequins into the soap to create scales and an eye. Hmm. I wonder if my mother still has that tucked into a drawer as a sachet somewhere… :)

    I especially like how the texture came out on the bristles themselves.
    The colors look great and will really show up on the wall.
    Most unusual surface? A wooden frame (not too original or unusual but it’s all I got to share). LOL

    Me ha gustado mucho como lo has resuelto, lo mas inusual que he creado hasta el momento es un mini album en una bisagra.
    abrazos.
