At the end of the second day I decided to try to use Ice Resin as a painting medium, which needed time to dry overnight. I dripped the gooey stuff on the paper “with intention” in the hopes that it would look like an elephant… it didn’t quite work on its own, though, so I added the pencil to “help the viewer,” as Teesha recommended.
This one sort of worked as I had hoped, so I left it alone for now. This one is really wonderful backlit (by hanging in front of a window, for example)…. the light shines through the resin and it GLOWS!!
Finally, I spent an enormous amount of time on this guy, who is huge. I think the paper is 12″x30″. I did many layers of colored pencil on his body, and it was very meditative.
