MISKITED MOON + MORE PLAYING WITH STENCILS AND WOOD ICING
The miskited moon shape came off easily from the watercolor canvas, no problem.
And I've begun another painting using the River Rocks stencil (by Mary Beth Shaw) and Wood Icing. I started with the stencil and palette knife and smoothed in the icing/paste and then using a different stencil, I did some more rocks here and there around the original stencil shape. I did flick some miskit at the board, too, before putting in the river rocks.
This is on 15" x 20" Crescent Board - hotpress watercolor paper glued to a hard pressed board surface.
I took Deb Ward's tip for using the watercolor board and ran miskit around the edges so it doesn't tear (if you tape it and then remove the tape, it sometimes tears the edges - especially if you get a lot of water on it).
I may do some watercolor pours to start this one off and then go from there...
