Proof of Life

I'm still waiting to exhale but I'm still working too.


I'm painting some background fabric that will be part of a bad luck quilt. The first layer will be stenciled letters. I made these stencils out of freezer paper so they would look like letters I would draw by hand instead of neatly prepared stencils. I'm using an iridescent Shiva paint stick that is very close to the background color. Since it is the bottom layer, I want it to be subtle. This is way too much fun. I could spend all day smearing around this color. Is that weird?

Is the shiva stick metallic? If so the metallic might act as a resist to anything that goes over it. I found this out with trying to write over metallic paint with the tee juice markers.

They are oil paint and I imagine the iridescent sticks have mica flakes. My guess is that they will act as a resist to anything water based.
