OWC: Adding Texture to Paintings with Corrugated Cardboard

More Texture for Mixed-Media Paintings: Adding Corrugated Cardboard

One member of our class complained that when she added corrugated cardboard it just sat there on top.

I had the same thing happen until I tore the cardboard in such a way that there was more than one layer visible. This seemed to help it ‘feather’ down into the painting.

The cardboard is collaged onto the painting by brushing heavy gel onto both the painting and the back of the cardboard, and then placing the cardboard in position, as in this ‘posing vulture’ painting…

  1. I was going to say how gorgeous that first painting is, but as I scrolled down I realized how I really love everything you’ve posted, the colors, the texture. Very nicely done as always.
