Acrylic Experiment


In this experiment I took the process I've been using with my Gelatos and tried it with acrylics.  I had more control with the acrylics because I applied them with a brush.  The Gelatos look rather like a chapstick, and you stroke them onto the paper like a pastel.  (You can also apply them to an acrylic block and then use a wet brush to pick up the pigment, but I haven't tried that method.)

I used a background of ochre, black, and white to draw my image on.  Here it is before I applied the blue and green paint:
