Layers of Texture

Night Sky - Sandra Duran Wilson

This painting has loads of texture created with plaster and gel mediums. I apply them as is and when dry I use glazes to create depth. The trick is  to let each glaze layer dry before adding the next. Apply the colored glaze, wait a few minutes and then wipe most of it off. You will have  that stays in the crevices. The next layer may have a bit more color left on. Play with the layers until you get the effect you desire. You can always go back and add more plaster on top to get a lighter area. Some crackle effects and transfers complete the piece.
