My friend Deb and I did some more paint pouring last weekend. I made a bunch of acrylic skins but then, what to do with them? I had one that I thought looked like a fish. So I looked up fish native to Montana and chose one to create out of acrylic skins.
Here’s a very poor photo of a sketch I made to get the shape and where the colors belonged.
Here are the two skins that I used to create the fish. I definitely see a fish in the one on the left. That’s where the idea came from. I wish I had made a few more fish colors now.
Here he is on white. I really like how he turned out. Now to decide on a background.
These are some painted papers that I already have. Which one do you like? I haven’t decided yet. I might try to pour a painted background for him. If so, I’ll need to get the right size canvas or board to pour on. If I use the paper, I think I might use a layer of pouring medium or glazing liquid on the paper to make it a little shinier. Not sure I like the contrast of the matte paper against the really shiny fish. Now what to do with 20 other acrylic skins in odd color shades?
