Multimedia painting of Cottesloe Beach...famous beach in Western Australia.
I used about 12 acrylic medium skins for this painting.

Terri,

I really like the texture to the water.  Really beautiful blues and well blended.

Skins????

Love this one, Terri! What are "skins?"

Bea Sue,
You paint acrylic paint on a non-porous non -stick suface (plexiglass, plastic, etc.), then pelled it (it = skin) off after it is completely dry. Then you glue the 'skin' on your canvas.

They may be other way to do this.

Easier said than done!

Thanks for the explanation of "skins," Annie.  Sounds easier said than done.

Susan - I don't feel so bad now that you asked the question, too.

Sorry for not replying to you all sooner....we are in Bangkok for my God duaghter's wedding.

Yes all, I smeared gel medium with some acrylic paint through it, some with metallic paint onto plastic A4 sheet protectors. I put cardboard inside the sheet to keep it non bendable, as it sticks on itself if you are not careful.
It was a bit of trial and error but I found that you need quite a thick layer of gel and I applied gel to them when they had dried, then glued them onto the canvas (with gel).
I also cut out shapes (for the building) and glued them on.
It was an experiment but I am happy with the result.
 
Thank you everyone for your feedback...and yes Nolan, it is a lot of fun!

 :thankyou:
Tezza
