First up we created a background using fabric & serviettes ( pull off the extra layers first). Leave a place for the face. I forgot to take a picture till this stage was so busy enjoying myself. The basic face is created using a stencil, then you add the neck & the hair line you want. Paint the hair. Then we used a stencil and white Liquitex spray paint, masking the area already done as you went.
Doodle the hair however you desire.
Now paint the skin colour in. I used 2 colours & mixed them and used them separately to create shading. Because of the placement of the dove I needed to get out a tiny brush to paint around it.
Ok I got so occupied again I forgot to take more pics. Paint in your eyes and add other facial features. Choose a background colour & paint it where required, I did over many of my items because it was a metallic see through paint I choose. Next add any stencil that you would like. I put 2 in the corners & the script one. Then I started my shading using gelatos.
This is my finished peice with all the shading finished. I also used various black and white pens for highlighting areas. I'm really pleased with the end result and have the supplies ready to try a few more. I'm hooked.
