Tin Foil Again

This was made by using a square of mat board for the background. Then I added various cutouts of scrap mat board to the surface and covered the entire surface with crumpled tin foil using gel medium to adhere it to the mat board. The final layers are various colors of Lumiere paints. I can see unlimited possibilities with this technique!

Are you using aluminum foil? Or is there a product that is called tin foil?

Yes, sorry --- I guess I grew up calling it tin foil, but it does say aluminum foil on the box.
