|The beginnings of a diorama and the buck skull.|
Early this morning, however, I opted to spend time in the studio. A buck's skull was coated in gesso for painting and other creative additions yet to be determined. I started a coat of Mod Podge on a berry container for another diorama. The bottom half of the painting-in-progress saw an addition of ground matter. What a happy discovery to find I don't need the extra process of spraying the acrylic wash with some kind of surfactant in order to do the Glad Wrap trick. Merely, layers of gel medium mixed with the desired color seems to give the same results, if not better, as the texture really takes form.
So these are fine discoveries in a studio so early in the day.
