Cyndi Lavin, 2017
Original and prints for sale
That afternoon's enjoyment morphed into a larger series that are representations of elementary particles in bubble chambers, electric currents, gravity and black holes, and magnetic fields.
I can't give you exact step-by-steps for these, but I can certainly give you the general idea if for some reason you wanted to try your hand at something similar:
Heavy watercolor paper cut to size
Foam brushes and rollers
Paper towels from previous projects, covered in acrylic paints (used to mop up)
Waterproof black India ink
Faber-Castell Pitt Pen, brush style, black
Krylon clear acrylic spray, satin
I used old paper towels from previous projects that were covered in Dick Blick acrylic paints (and dried) to collage the background with matte medium. After it dried, I used a foam roller to very lightly hit the high spots on the towels with white gesso. I used a combination of India ink and Pitt pens to add the design lines, and increased the white "frame" around the design.
