# ARTifact 28 : Paper
As I said in an older post I was going to try a new way of painting ( new for me that is ; maybe because I have no formal art-education).
It has to do with splattering alcohol in a not dry layer of acrylic paint. The alcohol ‘bites’ away the colour. So you get circles etc with a rim of the colour of the last layer and an inside of the earlier layer(s). You dry it and then repeat the proces for so many layers you want.
When I was happy with the layering I used bubble plastic to add some more structure.
Then I outlined structures I liked especially with light colours ( white with yellow, white with blue) or with a mixture of dark blue and purple.
The colours I used were 2 yellows, white, purple and cobalt blue.
After a days drying I added some gold paint. In some detaile-pictures part of the gold shows as orange.
I painted this on paper because I do not have canvasses big enough for this technique. Ofcourse I did gesso the paper first.
It was great fun to paint this and I like the result very much.
