DOWN AND DIRTY!

50/50 #30
The background on this one has something called a "dirty glaze" scraped on it.  I found the recipe and the name in one of the many, many books that I have!  Love the name and love the effect.  You take one part Micaceous Iron Oxide (a Golden product) and mix it with 8 parts matte medium.  I use a plastic spoon and put it in a small plastic cup and stir until well mixed.    You can cover the unused portion with Stretch and Seal and it will say good indefinitely!  I use a credit card to randomly smear some of the mixture over the surface of my paper.  Below is another example of a piece I did with some Dirty Glaze on the paper before the rest was added.    Give it a try!

For a 'dirty glaze' the painting is a beauty :) Thanks for sharing the recipe! I remember you mentioning it at the worshop but didn't write down the 'recipe' !

It is hard for me to see the effects of the glaze as being much different from the other pieces. I suspect for my untrained eyes, I'd have to see it in person. I can't tell you enough how much I am loving this 50 smalls series. They are each absolutely fabulous.
