Making a Mess


Sometimes winging it means making a mess. Eh, it happens. I wanted to play with modeling paste and a sketch I'd scribbled out months ago, so I did. And it got ugly. I tried to cover things up, add, drip, shade, but it just never came together.

Getting started. See my sketch reference to the left. That cardboard ring is from a roll of stickers from work. I used it as the template for the face. I used the green circle thingy as a stencil for the modeling paste.

I used my water soluble wax pastels to color in the face and hair.

You can kind of see where I'd randomly placed some masking tape before I gessoed over the top.

Modeling paste applied. Not loving it at this point... and it all went down hill from there...


Sometimes you just end up with a mess. And have a lot of fun doing it! Sure, there was some frustration, but mostly I just laughed about it. Enjoy the process, learn, move on. YAY, ART!
