A Covey of Canaries

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week we experimented with a textured support. Students drew canaries from images at http://etc.usf.edu//clipart and transferred them to watercolor paper which I had previously prepared with a “Coarse Molding Paste” by Golden. To prepare the paper, I first taped the watercolor paper to a piece of newsprint. The tape secured the paper and provided a “frame” once removed. I then added “Coarse Molding Paste” to the outside edges of the watercolor paper and let it dry. The students transferred their drawings onto the watercolor paper and used ink pens to outline them. Then they applied watercolor and acrylic paints, dragging the paints across the molding paste to highlight the texture. Quite lovely!
