Catartist at Etsy

Saturday, 18 September 2010

This is a little experiment – I’ve decided to recycle two cat ornaments that I’ve had for quite a few years. I got them at a car boot sale because they were bright and quirky but I never really liked the colours or their faces. They’re made of some sort of lightweight wood type material, I forgot to take a ‘before’ picture but I’m sure you’ll get the idea.

I painted a quick layer of acrylic gesso over them then smoothed Golden light molding paste over their faces and over the chest of the larger cat (he was wearing a tie and I didn’t like it!). When this is dry I’ll apply another layer of gesso before I start any painting.
