I spend a lot of time at Dollarama in Kemptville, my #1 art supplies store (besides Wallacks). I found a little container of brightly painted wooden pieces, which became the inspiration for this week's children's project. Playing with texture (gloss gel medium, sand, texturing tools), we first divided the piece of illustration board using 1/4" tape to make shapes. Once the gel had been dried, we used Golden liquid acrylics to applu paint in either a watered down or a full strength version. The watered down version flowed around the textures in an interesting way. To bring out some texture in the full colour areas, we used white paint in a scumbling fashion.
