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.
