Another small one in my textures series.
In this piece, the artresin works wonderfully to enhance the "3D" effect - corny as that may sound.
The gold and copper elements have kept their shape beautifully under the protective layer, not something that is always easy to achieve.
I have been experimenting with various different elements to achieve the varied textural elements. Glue, sand (from a beach near Mallaig, gorgeous!) spray paint, flour.. The list is long. The same is true for my tools, If it was close at hand, it had some sort of involvement. From pallete knives and sponges to paint strippers, wire brushes and pipettes.
It is, I believe, one of those pieces that you need to fall in love with. I'm sure it will divide opinions.
There is no right or wrong to this either. I haven't even decided which way round I feel is best. Honestly, I don't think I'm ever going to. I like the versatility, the fact that I see something else in it every day. How it changes depending on what is reflecting off it. The robustness of it in the midst of all the fragile detail. How smooth the coating, yet by no means free of blemishes.
This one is... Hmm.
