But I was intrigued by the different things that everyone mixed their PVA flour mix with. Would love to have some "after" pictures to go with the following!
These were made with gesso and flour. The pieces were added later and pushed into the wet gesso mix.
This is the flour and PVA mix, not sure what has been added looks like some seeds and sawdust. The flour/ PVA created some lovely sections of smooth lumps and bumps!
Angela used some fabrics to create her page, I love the mix of colours and designs. Did you add PVA to this??
You can also draw into the wet flour/ PVA mix. This will look amazing when it's painted. Would love to see it!
The above had different ingredients mixed in and on top of the wet flour/PVA mix. The poppy seeds and lentils were particularly good. I think the sawdust will prove interesting when it's painted too.
Drying takes some time!
I thoroughly enjoyed this investigation into different textures and using a variety of materials to create different effects. I think it was great fun to have the time and space to just experiment and see what happens!
Mel did use acrylic paints to colour her covers, the paint goes onto the PVA surface really well.
Never underestimate the power of PLAY !
Thank you Mel for this great activity!
