Acetone transfers

Acetone transfers. On the left a map was aged with paint staining, coffee and chalk pastels before the image was transferred.

Paint stained, rubber stamped newspaper was prepared before the application of the transfer.


Dreamer is created from polymer clay in colors of turquoise, bronze, yellow and gold and is adhered to recycled metal. The background is one of many techniques I'm currently working on.

Blue Ice

Blue ice or frozen pond or blue tree? I can't decide, but it does look like some kind of winter-scape. This is what happens when the tiniest bit of blue paint drips off of one surface and lands on another; a new technique is born! Sounds good, but what really happened is that I can't stand to waste paint so I grabbed the first piece of paper that was sitting on my counter and allowed the paint to dribble from a sheet of painted metal onto it. The paint ran in all directions and when I helped it along I decided that this piece of scrap paper was the highlight of the day! The metal turned out fair. Reminder: don't throw away scraps of paper! This one had a blue watercolor wash on it along with dry brushed gesso.
