Collage Lab 1: Basic Gesso Surface

Unit 1 Building the Foundation
Lab 1 Basic Gesso Surface
9 May 2013

"Food for Thought" Notes:
  • Gesso stiff and chalky when dry
  • Gesso builds texture
  • Best-two layers of color then texture one, sponge texture, masking tape, use brush to apply thicker layers
  • Difficult-scraping to substrate with one layer of gesso, pull-apart texture tore paper, pressing too hard with objects tore paper
  • Impression ideas-burlap, fork, crinkled paper, screen, toothbrush, string, corrugation, bubble wrap
