I can't resist it!
Sorry about the pun. This week's class was about using resist techniques such as wax, masking fluid, masking tape and frisket film. A certain person, namely Penny, also used sun block. That woman never ceases to amaze me with the ideas she comes up with....and they mostly seem to work. I wish I could post pictures of what she did rather than what I did! Betty had some lovely oil sticks which were lovely to use....in the photos it's the sample that looks like red and blue mountain ranges. The colour in the other samples is watercolour apart from the oval picture which I did using red and blue watered down acrylic ink which was applied to the page with a diffuser. I learnt this latter technique from a collage workshop which I attended a couple of weeks ago. I love the effect and am going to try it in more of my paintings.
On the cake front we had mince pie made with Betty's home-made mincemeat which was delicious. If I could only have one thing to eat at Christmas it would have to be a mince pie....I love 'em
