It was worked on Hessian with thick cotton thread, covered with a layer of gel medium then tin foil was placed on top and painted with acrylics and sprinkled with sea salt.
When the foil was dry I gently removed it and as you can see it still holds its shape although a thicker foil would have been much better.
The stitching was given a coat of acrylic gesso then acrylic paint in Quinacridone Crimson and Phthalo Turquoise was painted on. Once dry acrylic Flow Enhancer was painted on the raised areas supposedly to give the appearance of old bones!
This photo shows the piece when it was still wet…..
