Spread on my AB -acrylic layering


You can click on the pict for a larger view. This is my first part of my layering. I will add more colors today since I know what it looks like dry. I started out with a piece of aluminum foil, crumbled it and then glued it to the pages of the book. It is also in the niche. I used some old molding paste that I already had with some blue color in there. I randomly applied it with my fingers to the foil - accentuating the peaks and ridges in the foil. The molding paste layer was not thick. Waited for that to dry. I combined some black, purple, transparent oxide red, and somethng else. I added in some water. I brushed that one and sprayed some gold Radiant Rain on there. Does it not look like an old, decrepit house? It would make a great deMeng shrine! I might add a little color contrast like bits of red and green.
Comments welcome.

This does look like an old house. Great start to your book. I like all the texture and depth in the colors.
