I love Evolon's texture, and the way it retains that texture when you paint it. The piece here had been painted with diluted acrylic paints...notice that I've varied the strength of the paint in different places, suggesting a land or sea scape.
Where the Evolon is blue, the bondaweb has a variety of blues moving into purples, and into greys. I thought that would enrich the background, and decided to iron it on, just to see what happened. I didn't have a whole piece to lay over the top, so I tore it up, and laid it in different places, some of it overlapping, until it looked like this;
I like it... but there isn't enough unevenness about the top left hand side, and just at the bottom, there's a very light piece that also draws the eye... so I tore up more painted Bondaweb, and added it.
Then I spotted a piece of very fine white florist's wrap...I have no idea where it came from. I thought about adding it, to just add a little more texture, but also to even out the surface. Again, I added greaseproof paper and ironed it down. Interesting how it is starting to look shiny in places where there is three or more layers of Bondaweb.
PS I can't remember what I used to colour the Bondaweb; could have been Brusho, could have been watered down fabric paint...I think the latter is more likely. Experiment with what you have to hand if you want to try this; just don't apply paint too thickly, or you will lose the textural effect of the bondaweb.
