A section of my investigation of glossy surfaces.
My learnings so far:
- Oil: Adding oil or stand oil makes the surface shiny and glossy. Contrasting to turp miles only (matt effect) – click here.
- Acrylic: Pure and water diluted paint gives a matt surface effect. Adding glossy medium or Clear Tag Gel provides a gloss similar of oil painting with oil – click here and click here.
- Experimenting with painting on glossy surfaces: Using plastic film (protection film) gives when glued with acrylic adhesive a crinkled surface effect. The overall surface gloss depends on the paint I use- click here and click here
New approach with painting on plastic protector (office staples) and glueing to paper with acrylic adhesive.
First experiments – think first that I keep the plastic protector and to paint in it additionally. than I figured out the I can peel-of the plastic and the acrylic paint stays glued on the paper with a super shiny glossy and smooth surface
- Partly peeled-off, the glass it a double folded plastic with blue acrylic between the two layers of plastic
- Peeling off in layered approach: first tomatoes glued only the circles but hard to peel off in shape. Second layer (blue) with cut out shape at the bottom to match the tomatoe shapes.
- Layering in sequence: background -> glass (Cut out) -> tomatoes (Cut out)
Complete painting on plastic protector, glued with acrylic adhesive, and peeled – voila:
- Before peeling off
- After peeling off with additional markings in arcylic on top
Now I have to think how I apply this effectively and successfully in my works.
