WS: Gesso

Hermine is challenging us this week on Wednesday Stamper to create something using gesso.  It really is a great ingredient in mixed media.  I kid with friends that if you make a mistake or don’t like how something turned out……gesso is the magic fix!  You can cover, add texture and begin again!

For my card, I tried out my new Copic markers to color in the unmounted Gypsy stamp. To blend the piece to the background I used heavy gesso all around; inking and painting over it all.  The extra thick gesso can be layered for a real textured effect; I used one application for my card.

  1. you got Copics? That’s so cool! 😀
    They’re really awesome and even the ink refills can be used to create great effects, like I saw here
