November Demonstration by Sera Knight

With newspaper,magazines tissue and PVA glue

Can’t wait to see what Sera will be able to do

Triangular shapes cut from magazines was the first process

Stuck down to create the ruffles of the dress.

Up market magazines are too shiny don’t stick at all

You could end up a future masterpiece downfall

Using neat glue but the brush must be wet

Sweet wrappers and pamphlets are a better bet.

Cutting up paper and tearing it makes you feel good

Takes you back to the freedom of your own childhood

Laying the collage on top of each other makes the image look nice

Remember capturing  movement is important so don’t be too precise.

Crushed up tissue paper went on next for texture to be sure

It must be sheer, acid free and durable and yes, less is more

Lastly she covered the whole thing with yellow acrylic ink

Process magenta was used for the dress turning it pink.

Thin acrylic for the background,Paynes grey,indigo and white

Cutting in around the figure,suddenly the audience came in sight

Yellow ochre,alizarin crimson and white for flesh and face

Echoing the red of the dress into the background looks just ace.

Finally lighter colours produced movement to the edge of the skirt

Ah yes, I think  I could definitely become a collage convert.

Thank you Sera for a brilliant and informative afternoon.

We all look forward to another visit soon.
