Glue Resist Works
This painting is done on silk using Elmer's clear glue as a resist (white lines) and is machine quilted. The glue is applied using a fine metal tip on a squeeze bottle and allowed to dry. The silk paint is applied, salt added for mottled effect. Once the paint is dry & heat set the glue is removed bu soaking it in room temp water for 10 minutes or so. The piece is allowed to dry & is pressed with an iron, then machine quilted & finished. This painting is about 15 inches square. There will be more of this type of paintings to come.
