“Friends for Life” is painted in acrylic on a surface that I prepared with Golden’s Crackle Paste. The thicker you put it on, the bigger the cracks. It creates a very absorbant finish which can be a bit tricky to paint on. I have the best luck by just adding layer after layer of paint until I get it where I want it. I used a high flow mix of colors on the background. This is the second piece I have done of two giraffes. They are such fun creatures!
This one is done on a 14 x 18 cradled wood panel and is currently hanging at Larksfield Place in Wichita until Sept. 29.
