Your gallery is simply stunning. I've tried this technique with acrylics on larger substrates, experimenting with different viscosities and temperatures. It never fails to amaze me how the paint does its own thing, how some colors repel and how some attract. I'm often left wondering how I can push this technique further, how can I exercise more control, what else can it do...
yes control is the hardest part..., I often feel that when I am really patient and build up layer by layer i have more control, I use a ball on a stick now to manipulate and straws to blow bubbles and knives and spoons and that works great.. I often quick dry the upper-layer with a hair-dryer to keep the paint flow under the skin.. that gives great deep effect, I always use some sort of glossy paint or varnish to pull it all under a transparent 'blanket' I have been doing this for 20 years and I feel the same way you describe , lately I have been using white wash and dark and light stain.. you really should try it some time it gives less mix but great depth welcome to DA by the way.. big grtzZz
high and silk gloss paint on non sucking surface in this case plastic, this was done by hQ ultra blue and orange, silk white with thinner and black, I pour out in layers and manipulate, I use no brushes but sticks and balls and spoons and knives, the gloss makes it shine and pulls everything under a blanket or something like that.. heh I have been doing this for 20 years and it still amazes even me, paint is wonderful matter big grzz thank you for commenting
There is so much to look at in this one. The bright brain like shapes become fluid in a flowing sea of blue. Love the orange vein through the blue. This is what my brain feels like when I listen 'the Mars Volta' music.
