This is the final of my Tuesday Tags about Gesso based on the “5 Things to do with Gesso” that I am following over at Big Picture Classes. As with all the tags I will be making this year, this tag has two elements:
- My New Technique – “Drawing” Texture into Gesso
- Stash Used – Prima Marketing “Julie Nutting Dolls” and gilding wax
This week is slightly different, because as like last week, I am not stopping at just a first thin layer of Gesso.
Because it was so think, I left it overnight to dry. Although I choose to do a wooden effect, you could do an abstract or geometrical pattern. This is very quick and if I was in a rush, I could have dried it with a heat gun.
I wanted to keep a feminine-feel to the tag, so I pulled out one of my Julie Nutting Dolls. Now if you were a Bunty fan as a child, then you will love these dolls. By using my favourite paper piecing technique, you can dress the doll just as want.
The book paper is also covered with clear Gesso to give it strength. I coloured it with watercolour pencils, which I couldn’t do without the gesso. I then cut round her shoes, the headscarf, dress and apron, fixing them to the base with glue runner.
