I already painted a lot of things…. even things which are not supposed to be painted ( ask my furnitures…)
Paperclay, polymer clay, porcelain, plaster, canvas, wood… But I never painted resin in my life. I was a little impressed but very excited at the same time. I acted as I ordinary do, I just did it without thinking therefore without wasting any time by postponing a thing I anyway had to do.
I must say that, even though it is my very first time so it’s not a piece of art; I have been quite surprised to see how it came along nicely. I was expecting much more difficulties and nervous breakdowns…. But finally, all went very well and in a better way that I thought first.
I anyway, OF COURSE, ask for your indulgence… But I wanted to show the potential of Aleah with a face up and a body blushing. The only thing I have to confess is that I didn’t use acrylic paints as I should. I used oil paints with Venice siccative. I really can’t stand acrylic paints. They are just plastic and it is impossible for me to work with them; the nature of plastic repulses me and even though it can seem very old fashioned, I don’t think that any Art can be done with such material. It’s a kind of blockage I have with them. But, fortunately, oil paints with my favourite siccative worked really great ^^
This very face up and doll are for My P<3; Paulette Goodreau. Just because we are a WE. As we should be.
I am not proposing commissioned face up for Aleah. One is for My P<3, my very first one; another for my Mother who already has an Aleah, and the other one for my beloved dearest Grace. They are close enough to me to forgive my possible clumsiness as a newbie at resin.
I hope you will enjoy that first attempt.
