    • Gems are stones too, and these have a gemlike quality!

    • It looIs like granite to me. Love it

    • Very pretty Mary. Not sure hiw to use plastic wrap.

      • Thanks, June! I enjoy doing this technique every once in awhile…especially if i’m at a loss for an idea. I use a wet, loaded brush and quickly lay in some colors letting them run together. Before they can dry i drop a piece of Saran wrap or plastic wrap on the surface…don’t try to smooth out the plastic just let the creases and folds be there. When the paint is dry you lift the wrap and you should have some interesting marks. I’ve done flowers this way and manipulated the plastic wrap by just twisting it a bit in spots across the surface…just be sure to do it while it’s still wet. After I pull the wrap off i use a pen and outline different shapes …sort of like the sidewalk crack exercise. Here’s an image of another one I did last year using the same technique. We will have to get together for a “paint” day sometime! 3.7.18 Textiure img413

        • Thank you for sharing Mary…so interesting. Results are kind of like what happened with the acrylic painting with Iris in the workshop. I will have to to try this sometime. This turned out beautifully. Watercolors are still my favorite. And
          yes, we definitely need a painting day.

    • Could be gems! Bet it was fun Mary.

    • looks gorgeous. I wanted to do some flowers trying that technique so will be on on my soon list lol. 🙂

      • THanks, Lisa Ann! I’ve done flowers this way before. Got the basic shapes with the plastic wrap over the paint and then went in with permanent black ink. They are fun to do and I love the random quality.

    • I love the shapes you got, and the colors remind me of crystals and agates.
