Lesson 7 of Soul Food involved a whole lot of bodging and faking on my part. The technique taught by the lovely Zorana was a kind of patina effect using Golden fluid iridescent bronze paint. When she added water the paint separated into a deep bronze colour and a gorgeous green patina colour. I am still yet to purchase any Golden paints and the bronze I have certainly did not react magically to water the way the Golden branded one did in Zorana's lesson. I also didn't have a marks all pencil... so used a watercolour one. Hence - fake and make do.
We were encouraged to draw some quick simple bird shapes and wash over with this beautiful, beautiful wash. I think this is the first time I'd tried a Gesso resist too... well, a delicate one anyway. I've scraped tons of the stuff through a stencil for texture but this was very delicate. I do like the effect.
