GPP Crusade No. 29 Brush Effects: Take 1

Be sure to check out the new Green Pepper Press Crusade here for more details. This is my first installment for Crusade no. 29.
This is an experimental piece that I tested a mixture of acrylic glaze, interference powder and metallic paint. I added some glazes to bring out forms, but I wasn't satisfied.
I spread a layer of matte gel over the painting with a squeegee. Next a mixture of purple paint and matte gel was stamped onto the wet surface using circular tools. The gel is still wet on this picture. Stay tuned for the dry version.

Regina - can't wait to see what you do next with this! Thanks for showing us your process photos - that circle blotter is amazing. I love when the scraps turn out to be another juicy element.

Love the purple. It will be interesting to see what happens once the gel is all clear. Aren't interference colours the trickiest things to get good photogaph of...
