I just completed this piece of art. I started this one ages ago. I started with a base of aluminum foil. I smooshed paint onto it (yes, smooshed is a technical term!) and added some lacy rice paper. Then I painted a very bold, black graphic design onto it. I got it out last weekend and finished it. I painted over the entire surface with a white glaze and then sprayed it with water. I added a bit of pale color with water-soluble oil pastels. Then I rolled more white onto it and did a bit more color. The final step was to bring back the graphic, but in a much softer manner with a black glaze. I also used a black, wax crayon to rub over the lighter portions to bring out the texture more. I am finally happy with the end result!
