Glazing Experiment by alifann Glazing Experiment by alifann
I have always been wanting to know how to glaze. This is the process from start to finish. The idea of glazing is adding transparent strokes on top of another, my glazing felt more like tinting. I started from dark painting and then tinting it with cold transparent colours. On top that I'v been experimenting with different oil mixtures, galkyd, stand oil and alkyd, knowing I was experimenting I was not afraid in screwing up the painting. I learned that glazing with stand oil has yellowed my colours in a week, all blues had a turned to a strange green/ yellow colour. Once I finished glazing which is the 2nd image. I was bored and wanted to do something more, if anyone tried transfers on canvas you will know what the last imagine is made out of. I glued a giant piece of paper on top of my painting and took water and slowly started to remove the paper off with a soft sponge and revealing a ghostly image. I left the bits of paper that is scattered all over the face and frame of the painting.

Pretty brave with gluing the paper eh? What would you have done if the paper that remained was covering one of her eyes or be otherwise problematic? Were you able to take chunks off, or what stayed had to stay for good?

This is great! At school, a large part of our art mark is based on experimentation and I never know what to do! So this has been of great help ^^

normal printing paper thickness and quality. The worse the quality the better the paper comes out.

could you have used multiple sheets instead of one big one then? o:
eep, just a bunch of questions, but glue? would you explain that
process? and also do you have a useful tutorial on how to glaze? i
looked it up a while back but never understood. is it just like
painting with a fast dry thing and using different colour glazes or?

Her expression seems totally different between image one and image three. That's quite an interesting side-effect.

most of my paintings are influenced by music. My older work I had been inspired by florence and machine but the newer colder ones are inspired by a collection of calm instrumental music.
