|Close up, second attempt.|
In a nutshell, it's molding paste spread on a stabilizer, textured, washed with acrylic paint and then run through the printer. It allowed me to achieve incredible texture and it's so easy! Check out the magazine for detailed instructions.
I created two prints using a cropped and edited photo of mangos. The first one had too much paint in the wash, I wasn't happy with the deep orange color. Here are shots of both printings.
I can't say enough how impressed I am with this technique
|Full size, first printing. The swirls are the texture created in the molding paste.|
|Second try, molding paste, textured and washed with paint before printing|
|The color in my second attempt suits my project much better.|
