|Want to help support my goal to raise funds for the American Chestnut Foundation? It's important to me because 1)I am an amateur wood turner and it's hard to do that without trees. 2) The thought of whole species of trees being wiped out in our lifetime is a scary one. The ACF helps breed disease resistant trees and they share their knowledge with other groups trying to protect specific tree species.|
ACEO's for Charity?I'm very inspired by :iconsecrets-of-the-pen:, who has made over 370 ACEOs for charity. For one full year she made an art card every single day, and donated the proceeds.
But don't want or need a trading card sized artwork?
Thank you for your support.
If you are curious, I used the following paints for this demo:
Now, onto the fun part!
3. Now you have 12 slices! This next part makes sense, I promise!
4. Paint over 3 slices at a time.
5. For one circle paint just your primaries. For the other, paint just the secondaries.
6. Allow to dry fully. If you rush the next step and try to glaze over damp colors it will not work well at all.
7. Paint in 3 slices at a time. When we are done there will be 1 slice showing the base color, and on either side it will be glazed over 2 different colors.
For example, here the red orange is by itself in the middle slice, it is bright orange when glazed over yellow (difficult to see because my camera is aging, sorry!) and red when glazed over magenta.
8. Keep glazing 3 slices at time - enjoy the magic as new colors emerge!
Hope someone else out there finds this fun and useful!
