Oriental Canvas Panel
Creating this canvas panel made a nice change ,I have been wanting to try out my Byzantia chips by Stewart Gill,I decided to use them on this,first using a primed canvas,I glued the chips onto it ,then I painted it all over with black acrylic paint,my intention was for some of the black to show through the next layers of bronze and gold metallic paint,that didnt happen I get carried away lol.
So now to alter the jigsaw pieces,I had some small pieces of fabric paper over so used that to cover them,then stamped oriental faces with Stazon,edged with black Sharpie pen.
I next used Anita's 3D clear gloss finish to cover them,while it was still wet,I laid my beads gently in,and the coin,the two long pink and black objects are handmade and painted beads in the same colours as I used in the fabric paper.I managed to sew then through the canvas instead of glueing.
Enjoyable project !
