Two years ago I started collecting 4″x4″ Chunky book pages on certain themes. Usually these pieces of art are done in variety of mixed media techniques. Pages are thick and sturdy with dimensional embellishments .
This week I created 4 pages for an “Altered woman” SWAP (exchange).
For the first page “Endless rain” I used paper and tissue collage, stamping and acrylic painting on a card board. Image is sealed with satin varnish.
Chunky page #3 “Marvel” is a mixed -media acrylic painting on a cardboard wrapped with cotton fabric. On this piece I practiced varnishing finished acrylic painting with the Golden MSA Varnish with UVLS (Satin) . It is a new material in my hands and I am really pleased with the result: the varnish has thick consistency , but easy to spread on surface, dried well overnight, the finished look has a pleasant satin (not too glossy) sheen. Now it is my favorite varnishing product.
