In a weak moment I added a green and a blue Oxide spray to my cart. They were on deep discount (both bottles for under $6) and I had avoided the whole Oxide craze for so long that I decided to play with some. This piece was white Text Vellum that I covered the whole thing with white gesso, then cream modeling paste in random, and white modeling paste through mandala stencil, allowing to dry between each step. Spritzed with water then dropped several drops of a blue Oxide spray by un-screwing the spray top and dripping off end of spray tube. Plus dropped several drops on glass mat. Added a drop of glycerin to this pool and sponged the color in areas for more intense color. Once dry I used a sanding block along stenciled area to reveal the cream layer. Coated whole piece with clear gesso. This did give the piece a leather like feel and sheen like alabaster. Stamped the flowers on white Text Vellum and used pooled color to water color the petals and added the green straight out of the bottle to brush to paint the leaves. Once fussy cut I gave them a good spray of shimmer spray to lock in the colors. Mounted with gel for some dimension. Stamped sentiment in black ink directly on piece. Added glossy accents to flower centers.
