Tiny Experiment #4

For this experiment i tore up pieces of embossed wall paper and glued pieces to a piece of canvas paper. Next i added crackle paste with a pallet knife. Once dried i painted the whole piece black. Next i used a dry brush to apply color to the piece. When the brush has very little paint on it the paint only holds to the top surface while the cracks and texture stay black. This really helps to create heavy shadow and texture.
