Collage Lab 5: Corrugated Substrates


no gesso

Unit 2 Texture
Lab 5 Corrugated Substrates
13 May 2013

"Food for Thought" Notes:
  • No gesso allows color and more texture of substrate to show through paint
  • Dry brush more textural than washes
  • Use to create a raised focal point
  • Ways to alter substrate: cut, tear, crush, sand, gesso, paint, wash, puncture
  • Even planned techniques may lead to unintended results and happy accidents

  1. I agree with the last statement. I was recently delighted when a friend asked me why I didn't sell my collaged postcards on Etsy - well they were just accidents?!?
