but I am so ready for spring! I know it's already "spring"
but I mean warm spring like weather!
No more coats and rain(boo), I want to wear fun and flirty fashions!
Well, if I cant wear them(yet), I can create them!
The Blue Dress: The top is a thin layer of gesso directly on the acrylic,
wait for it to be completely dry then color. I used a "Snow Cone"Gelato®
- draw on the gesso then spread with a dry sponge. Draw details with a Pitt Artist Pen.
I used paper for the skirt (using the same techniques) and lace ribbon underneath.
The Yellow Dress: Is all paper pattern paper (Pink Paislee) glued onto the acrylic-
I used a little gesso on the bodice so I could add the lace ruffles with a PITT Artist Pen.
The sash is a silk ribbon colored with "Watermelon" Gelato® and a wet paint brush .
The Purple Dress: The entire "dress" is gesso directly on the acrylic
- this time the layer was a lot thicker- it takes longer to dry but the
texture was worth it. After it is completely dry you can then color
it with a Raspberry Gelato® and detail with Pitt Artist Pens.
*The white edges around the dress forms is gesso applied with a paintbrush.
So if your weather is not permitting you to wear fun and flirty fashions like me,
perhaps you can make your own like I did!
