Interference Acrylic Colours

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. See Lesson #4. Adding interference acrylic colours is an option, and personal preference. I used interference blue and gold in this piece, as final accents in the background, and a little bit in the Wolf too. I like the pizzaz and funk it brings to the final result :) Is the piece for sale? No What are you most proud of? Experimenting! I am always proud when I take risks, and trying something off-beat and different :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Interference colours really should be used as a last layer. Because they are so transparent, and they are not cheap! So they work best over top other colours, and especially dark colours! This is one of the reasons why I chose to apply some accents in the charcoal powder covered areas. Also, I do suggest to use any funky colours sparingly ... they can easily overpower, so I try to use them for sophisticated accents.

Q&A with Sharlena Wood

ckayedel1100008233621756 asked:
Can I use oils with your class
Sharlena Wood answered:
sorry for the delay in responding to your comment, posts in the project area are not as easy for me to keep up with!
ckayedel1100008233621756 asked:
Can I use oils as a medium in your class
Sharlena Wood answered:
Yes you can certainly use oils. It will be a little more trail and error, since there is no oil medium substitute for the dry media ground, so you want to start with a very rough gesso surface (i.e. Liquitex Clear Gesso), and I recommend a hard birch panel support. Try and use solvents or any matte medium (ie. cold wax) you can find, rather than more oil to thin, as you want the oils to be as matte as possible when dry. Glazes and thinner layers are best. Test with different drawing media, drawing into wet oil paint, leaving marks on the ground surface, as well drawing on top of it when dry. Have fun experimenting!

Where do I find a list of supplies for the wolf"
Sharlena Wood answered:
When you are logged in to the class, look beside the LESSONS link, you will see a MATERIALS link which is for all the projects :)
