Tonight I applied the black paper with inclusions to the Biteyou collage. I took a little extra time to make the Biteyou-shaped tears a little bigger so that I will be sure to have room for painting his edges or outline...whatever it turns out I do with him. This process always takes longer than I expect.
|Ready to get started.|
|I tore the Biteyou outlines a little bigger and slopped on the matte medium.|
|I apply the matte medium underneath and on top...just to make sure it is good and wet and stays put.|
|It is drying nice and clear.|
|I need to let him sit for a while before I move him back into the studio to keep drying.|
I still don't know how I will finish him...certainly he is not fully painted yet. I don't know if I will use more paper(s) to create a background or paint on top of the paper or maybe a bit of both to keep the collage going. I do think he is outside in the dark...unlike me, Biteyou is not afraid of the dark outside.
