Hi there! Wishing Eid-el-Adha to those celebrating tomorrow!
Today, I want to share a mixed media work entitled 'A Malay Girl in Paris'. It's a 'not-that-simple' project using canvas, acrylic paints, texture paste, distress inks and ......beeswax. Yes, beeswax! You can't see clearly from the photos because I didn't use much or lets just say...I wasn't adventurous enough to play with much beeswax on that day. Lol! Not as much as I thought I would...hehe...next time....
So, the story is about a Malay Girl who travels to Paris seeking inspirations to create. She's very proud of her traditional costume and wears it everyday in the city. I gesso'ed the canvas first before painted it in acrylic orange. Then I stamped scripts randomly on the canvas with the archival ink. I mixed a texture paste with a green acrylic paint and applied on Balzer's design stencil. You can see that on the bottom left corner of the canvas.
Maybe next time I will do a Japanese girl in KL? A Chinese girl in Timbuktu? Hmmm.......
She has 'creations and inspirations' in her hands.
Thanks for stopping by! Gotta rush..... Do come visit again soon!
