Having added the bow and having let it dry for several days, I wanted to add colour, well actually I wanted to add depth and I did this by adding colour. Here is what the flat blue looks like:
I started with the light blue and kept adding white (I love the powertex white pigment!) and sadly the camera cannot bit up the difference as there is too much blue on blue. However. This is what the paper towel I dried my brush on looked like. I think there are 6 shades on here.
I think it probably looks more “Christmassy” with a bow! and I like the way you can pick out the details in the fabric with the pigments. But most of all I like the fact that powertex is perfect for building 3D structures out of flat material.
