New Painting Supports:Here are some process photos...
I Started these pieces knowing I wanted to work on various shapes, I like the notion of the image being framed in a new way.
I'm using half inch ply-board, its easy to cut with a electric jigsaw.
I drew the large circle by making a make-shift compass with a drawing pin and string, for the heart shape below I made a half heart stencil from cardboard this helped me keep heart shape symmetrical.
After lots of sanding with an electric sander. I first used a 3D acrylic paste to prime and fill the surface imperfections of the new shape. I used a plastic card to apply this, when this was fully dry I sanded the surface again and began to prime the supports with an acrylic based primer.
I used a small sponge roller to apply the primer this gave the surface a soft grainy tactile texture much like an interior wall that has been painted this way.
Three coats of primer later... I then painted the new supports in pastel pink and blue acrylic paint. <3 div="" end...="">3>
