ATC Monday #025 - Prized Specimen
Using DecoArt Media Modeling Paste, I have created a raised image of the fossil by drawing the paste through the stencil. Once dry I then painted the base layer in DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Titan Buff, on to which I introduced washes of Raw Umber, Yellow Oxide, Paynes Grey and Quinadcridone Gold. Between each wash layer I sprinkled salt in to the wash, giving the layers their unique mottled look.
To pick out the stencil detail, I painted the raised areas in Paynes Grey using a stenciling brush. Finally, to further highlight, I dry brushed the entire ATC using a soft brush and Titan Buff.
