Yay, I'm keeping up!
The colors aren't true, but this is the best shot I can get right now.
This background and the background for Face 18 were made like this:
Layer of white gesso
Lay down a layer of dry paper toweling (that was previously used to mop up
excess Dylusion spray from another project) on top of wet gesso layer.
Spritz the paper towel with water, a pretty good wetting, and let sit for about 5-8 minutes.
Lift/peel the paper towel off.
Leaves an interesting background to use as is or to start from. Here I just used as is.
Thank you for looking!
