Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A pangolin models her multicolored armor. 9.2014

I assembled dozens of cut-up acrylic skins to form the pangolin's scales. The skins were formed on my palette or inside the cups that I use for poured paint. Re-purposing them, I am able to waste very little and create rarely seen textures and layer combinations.

The background of the painting is varnished in matte and the pangolin in gloss. It is signed on the bottom edge and signed/dated on the back.

This painting is:
( ) 100% handmade, starting with hand-cut stretcher bars.
( ) Created with all high-quality materials.
( ) Sealed with a removable varnish for conservation and easy restoration.
( ) 100% ready-to-hang and includes all necessary hardware.
( ) Shipped with a handmade certificate of authenticity.

What is an acrylic skin?
An acrylic skin is simply a thin skin of acrylic paint. Acrylic skins are formed by stacking thin layers of acrylic paint on a smooth surface. The paint is left to dry and then peeled off. Acrylic skins stick to themselves and smooth surfaces like plastic wrap. The thinner the skin, the more delicate and difficult it is to work with.

Pine Stretcher Bars, Canvas, Acrylic Skins, Acrylic Paint, Removable Varnish
