Hark! An Art!

The Freedom Fighter's Manual

I spent Christmas weekend finishing up work on a collage book I started two years ago. It was enormous (108 pages), so I don’t know when I’ll find the motivation to sit down and scan the whole thing. I did a page-through video, though. (Audio provided by Thomas, who decided that was the perfect time to sit down next to me and chew on his Benebone.)

A Test

Clear watercolor ground test, dried 24 hours. This was not a thick application, but it needs to be thinner, to avoid opaque sections. Not tragic!  This is why testing is good. #artjournal #sketchbook #painting #testing #watercolorground

I pasted a piece of textured kraft paper into my journal with acrylic medium. I covered that with a thin coat of Daniel Smith transparent watercolor ground. After drying 24 hours, as recommended, there were still opaque streaks. So next time, I’ll know that thin is not thin enough. Must apply even thinner!

I’m really happy with the way the finished product handles, despite the streaks. I think it will be a nice addition for collaging elements into journals that you later want to use wet media on. The ground also comes in opaque white, if you don’t want the underlying surface to show.

Everyone’s a Critic

My cats are jerks. #cats #catscratch #gluebooks #artjournals #art #collage

One of my cats decided to sharpen their claws on the book I’m working in. Jerk.
