In between painting Tarot designs I have an on-going stock of papier-mâché dragons, which are like my laboratory rats for experimental mixed media techniques. I start by double-priming the dragons with white gesso, then paint a base color in acrylic (green, gold, red, bronze ...) After which I apply a variety of techniques to highlight each dragons features : sponge-dabbing, toothbrush-spraying, fingers, also using a lacquered ceramic paint with a marbling effect, and porcelain relief outliners.
No two dragons are the same, each one represents a unique example of paint experimentation!
