In this, I applied metallic acrylic paint; let it dry and then painted black acrylic paint over it all. I then took a pallet knife and cut out the design you see. Reverse Creation! In a way, it is like the Cuna Indian Mola where they put layers of cloth together and cut out and sew to bring out the different colors in their design. Reverse Applique. I hope that you enjoy!

This is really a step out of the normal for you Sharon. This does not rate up there with some of the work you put out but then again it is not my forte and therefore not mine to comment on. Keep on doing things like this and growning in your art.
