Project 3 Layer 4

Here is the fourth layer before heat application. It takes about 24 hours before I fuse the layer with heat depending on the thickness of the wax/paint. I changed from a brush to a palette knife.  I also changed from ultramarine to cobalt blue in my mix and added the first bit of white. I hope I can get at least another 6 layers before installation day. Each layer is like opening a Christmas present. I'm never quite sure how it will look after using heat. I'm thinking of scraping a layer to reveal the previous one in areas. I'm trying to keep this in mind as I add layers but sometimes I just get into the flow of the moment.


  1. Elizabeth,

    It is exciting to see the progression of this one. I love the colors and the composition so far. Continue!

    Have a great week,

  2. thanks Brian. It's taking longer for this layer to dry. I'm hoping today I'll be able to take the hot gun to it. The heat changes it dramatically and I'm curious to see the results.
