New Toys

One of my Christmas gifts was a check --- thanks, Mom! --- so today I went shopping. I got the starter set of Golden fluid acrylics and some glazing medium to mix with them. Yes, I have a plan...... I am going to experiment with crumpled tissue paper on canvas, followed by a wash of color using my new toys. My hope is that this will provide a textured background for a new series of collages. Wish me luck!

Oooh, what fun toys! I wish I had some of your energy - I still have toys that haven't been opened yet (including some of your great hand-dyed fibers). Happy painting!

I'm curious, could you tell me why you use glazing medium?

I envision that it will give a gloss to the finished work and allow acrylics to function more like watercolors. It's a process that I want to experiment with on canvas.
