Angel Assemblage... Day 2!

I dedicated several hours to working on this angel today.
With a dry base coat of flat black over the entire piece,
I then began layering and gluing some scrap-booking papers.
Next... I recklessly painted gesso over the entire piece: 
papers, doll head, wooden legs, etc. (getting "brave" in my old age)
Then... I immediately wiped it off using a rag dampened with water.
I am so pleased with the effect; 
sort of a weathered, white-washed look!
I am planning of painting the cloth over-lay head, 
adding something to the wooden wings and also 
some color to the legs... I originally had thought
that I would add wood finial and paper clay arms... 
now I'm not so sure.
Thank you for stopping by... enjoy this day!  Daryle

  3. Daryle, this piece is great! It would be wonderful in a child's nursery. Can't wait to see how you finish it!
