When I was walking through Creative Minds, a few super cute wooden shapes caught my eye. They had basswood in so many different shapes and sizes!!! I've only painted on wood a couple of times and it hasn't been as enjoyable as I'd hoped. One of the issues I've always faced is the limited work time it allows me. I primed the surface well with Fredrix Gesso but despite that, the wood just absorbed the paint so quickly and I could barely do much mixing. Here are a few of the shapes I picked up. Love them!!
I decided to go with the shape that resembled a sigil the most (ha), and had such a blast painting it. All the pieces will end up on the gallery wall in the peach room. Take a look at the journey of the first plaque that I created. I enjoyed the process a LOT.
