Face 19

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!


  1. That did make a very interesting background. I really like this face. She seems like she is really thinking hard about something.

  2. A very nice face and thanks for sharing your method of making the background. I am getting so many new ideas from this challenge, I will never have time to try them all.

  3. Great face, and I love how created that fantastic background!
