Thanks, Mary Lou, Val, Gita, and Elizabeth

I think there are a lot more ways I can use this tracing paper technique.

Stay tuned.

WAY cool, Mea! I love the effects you've achieved. Now I can't wait to give it a try.

What brand of spray adhesive did you use?

Susan,

Thanks.  I love painting this way.  So fast!

I use 3M General Purpose spray Adhesive from the hardware store.  Works well.

I need to get softer tracing paper - and on a roll so I can do 11 x 14" paintings.

Mea, I Love your crumpled paper paintings! When I read your thread yest. I was at work, I took the topmost layer of a white paper napkin crumpled it and glued it on 300 lbs. water colour paper.
My trial painting with WC is in my gallery.
Background painting of crumpled paper was an interesting experience. Painting the dancer was a real pain with wc. So at home I tried acrylic on it. I am still working on this and trying my best to make the best of the dancer. I even removed the crumpled paper within the figure by wetting before. 
I think the method is fun and opens room for more experiments!
Thanks for sharing again and thanks to Jimi. T.  O0

Mea, thanks So much, how nice of you! Let's wait for other entries and of course looking forward to see more of your work! Did you also use Gouache?

Thank you, Val. I appreciate your comment.  :D

Those are nice crumbled paper watercolour painting Mea.  Neet technique I might have to try that too.  I also saw an artist in Gatineau that use this technique with silk paper.

Mea, the paintings are lovely! I have an artist friend who also has fabulous results with crumpled tissue paper. I would love to try it sometime if I ever am able to get back into painting again. Thanks for the inspiration! :thankyou: O0

Thanks, eChaney.

The advantage here is that the crumpled tracing paper is so easy to paint on.

Sure hope to see your work someday.

Ooops, I had switched over to the new Crumpled Paper topic where others can post their trial paintings, so I missed some of these messages.

Thanks Gita, Danielle (long time, no see!), Mary Lou, and Maria.

This is going to be my husband's Christmas present.  He flew B-17's in World War II.


Still have time to tweak it if you see something that needs attention.
