Day 19

Day 19

Day 19 - The cover on the chair has sort of a ponyhair aesthetic so I decided to break out my crackle medium again. Yellow Iron Oxide and Quin Gold were laid as a wash with the medium layered over once dry. I used a mixture of magnolia white (folk art paint) and Quin gold for the top coat. Interestingly I dried the crackle medium with my heat gun and found the crackling didn’t work quite as well as when air dried. I’ll have to remember that for future reference! I let the heat gun bubble the paint and kept adding Quin Gold, white, a bit of Bone Black, wiping off to create the texture, aged look I was going for. I decided to try using my India Ink and quill pen to create some marks - fyi back in the day I did a LOT of pen and ink drawings - which scritched the surface creating some uneven lines. NOT what I was looking for. I added the modified quote, "We can’t all be cowboys." paraphrased from a Counting Crows song (Goodnight Elizabeth). I’ve always loved the sentiment. Having some remaining ink, I decided to spritz the surface for some final texture and to balance out my wonky lines.
