Out with the old and in with the new ...

With the new year fast approaching, I need to finish a couple projects before I can move on to new ones.  The reversable Fall/Halloween table runner needs embellishment and the children's kitchen aprons need finishing, as well.

Reverse Collage Painting
In a magazine called Cloth, Paper, Scissors, I found a painting technique called "reverse collage painting".  You apply decorative paper to canvas, wood or a picture frame, then cover the paper with paint.  You then create your image by removing the paint using your finger or a cotton swab.  The surface is treated with acrylic medium before paint is applied for easy removal.  I'm not a painter but I'm looking forward to trying my hand at this.

  1. Now the question, of course, is how you might adapt this technique so that it could be used for 28mm scale figures...
