After my abysmal fail the other day I’m trying again. Black background this time with a hammer instead of a mallet. I was really pleased at how it turned out and then….put to one side and forgot to check level. Looked over half hour later to find it had all tilted and run. ah well, tilted a bit more and ended up with this.
Third time’s the charm eh? Finally got a decent hammer smash. Used black background and outlined to create flowers shapes.
I have enjoyed this way of moving paint and can see that it can produce some interesting shapes once you get the hang of the technique. I know in future that I need to use minimal colour as the paint splashes a long way and its one of those “less is more” scenarios….
I did a second that I turned into flowers by tweaking the paint and pouring an outline of neat paint. Then used leftovers to do a final board. I hate waste so usually do something like that, may come out well, if not it gets repoured 😉
