Summer is officially here and I'm playing around with color and acrylic paints. Since I'll be part of the upcoming Miami Pen Show, I feel like I need to incorporate some fun, hot colors into my mail art. So I'm jumping in and making a splash. Literally.
This week I'm playing around with a technique that produces inkblots with colorful paints. You basically drip paint onto the envelope then squish it to make an image. To make the image pop, I first painted a layer of white gesso onto a kraft envelope.
I love the results, but the drying time takes a while. Best to make at least a day ahead and allow to dry overnight. Happy Summer!
