Making an Acrylic Skin
I am learning to make digital skins using acrylic gels. My friend Bonnie Cutts, an absolutely incredible artist, has been encouraging me to experiment and I am totally stoked about the possibilities. I am spending part of this Labor Day weekend making skins and printing on them with my Epson printers. I love the Fiber Paste for the texture and similarity to the torn rough watercolor paper that I like to use. These acrylic skins can be applied to canvases as part of a finished piece. Usually I would scan the finished watercolor piece to print it larger on canvas but now I can apply my photographic elements directly to a large acrylic work. As I learn more, I will post working tips and guides to my process. I’m sure I will be posting new work soon too.
