Papier Mache masks

Based on a cardboard box, deconstructed and reformed into the right shape with gaffa tape, then strips of newspaper and PVA glue to make a strong, plastic finish. Takes about a day and costs very little!

elder god

I was feeling creative yesterday – this started off as acrylic painted onto a canvas, with more detail added with inks.

This technique is working well for me – I love the textures you get with acrylic and the way you can almost mould it with a palette knife  – but I struggle with control and subtlety as the cheap acrylics I can afford tend to clump and are too bright and plasticcy – it’s very had to get any sort of natural warmth from them.

Using inks on top of the acrylics (a mixture of windsor and newton and quink) is a good way to bring a bit more depth and detali in – you can of course use a really fine brush or dip pen with the inks, and they have a better quality of colour – less “new” looking.

I may have gone a bit overboard with the gold ink, but I wanted my elder god to look shiny!

Ink drawings

Today I have been busy drawing.
These use Windsor and Newton inks (the same set my mum bought me when I was 16 actually, that’s why I’ve only got 3 colours left), a rotring disposable black pen, on cheap watercolour paper.
