Video showing my application of one of the multiple layers of UV protective varnish to your artwork. This process involves coating the entire panel, sealing in the archival floral paper elements, and then letting dry for several days between coats. This both protects the artwork from UV rays and also provides a great barrier between the artwork and the final resin pour. I anticipate all of these coats being completed and starting the resin pour on next Friday. Getting closer!
08-20-23 Update Part II
08-20-23 Update Part I
Below is a stem color test with the two smaller dandelion circles. Both silver and red/orange are shown below with the pink stem. I think it looks great and I actually like the idea that all three stems will be the same color (on each side of the center column of flowers).
08-05-23 Update (Part I)
Background color applied to test panel. We will use this panel to test some of the flower color combinations in the coming days. Please note that as this paint was just applied it will look a little lighter than when it has dried.
