Exploring Glazing Medium


Du weisst schon - unsere neues Thema bei 
You know - our new theme over at

**ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY*

FRIDA KAHLO

  And here you can see with what the artists came up with yet at one glance
Alle bisherigen Arbeiten zur Challenge hier auf einen Blick 
Frida

Would be great to meet you this month  - join us !
Wär toll Dich da zu treffen - mach doch auch mit!

For the glazing I used Glazing Medium from Golden -
 for Art Journaling I  normally just use the cheaper way for glazing - 
my DIY Modgepodge- does nearly the same fab job
(1 little bottle of white schoolglue thinned with half a bottle of water in a jar)
and Stabilo Watercolor Pencil in Black for the portrait,
 Acrylics, white correction pen and water.
I started with this background made with Oilpastels and Distress Inkpads.
As a fixative for the background and for the drawing I used hairspray /
I don't like the smell of professionell fixative Sprays.


Bei dieser Arbeit hab ich ein  Lasurmedium ( Glazing Medium von Golden ) ausprobiert,
ehrlich gestanden verwende ich sonst die preiswerte selbstgemachte DIY Modge Podge Variante zum Lasieren in meinen 
Art Journalen - gleicher Effekt  aber kostet kaum was.
( Ein Fläschchen weissen Bastelleim in einem leeren Gläschen mit Schraubverschluss mit einem halben Fläschchen voll Wasser gemixt - fertig )
Stabilo wasservermalbarer Stift in Schwarz , Acrylfarben, weißer Korrekturstift
Fixiert hab ich den Hintergrund und den wasservermalbaren schwarzen Stift mit Haarspray, ich ertrage den Gestank vom professionellen Fixativspray einfach nicht!

  2. Beautiful work, Susi. I love her expression and your lovely colors. I have been experimenting a lot with glazing this summer. There are so many different kinds, it can be overwhelming!

  3. WOW, oh wow. I learned a lot here. First, I learned about glazing mediums and your recipe for the cheaper way. I also learned you use hairspray, something I always did until I went to our Household Hazardous Waste Swap and Shop, where I picked up a can of Krylon fixative. I agree that the hairspray smells better, and works just as well, but FREE was free, after all (grin).

    I adore the background, and your drawing is superb.

  10. fixative is soooo smelly... hairspray works well and smells better... though i really love the glazing medium from golden... I use it with the heavy body paints and it makes them wonderfully smooth to use... must try to modge podge solution though... would be much cheaper xx

  18. Wow, absolut gelungenes Portrait! Die Farben finde ich klasse! Mit diesem Fixativ stehe ich auch auf Kriegsfuß, nicht nur das es "riecht" bei mir tropft es auch noch immer und macht das Bild kaputt. Seitdem nutze ich auch Haarspray.

  26. Das ist wirklich wunderschön! Mir gefallen die Farben sehr! I sometimes use the Golden Glazing medium and really like it. And Fixative I have to use outside and let it air. I'm the opposite - I like the smell...but I know it's not good for me. :) I've never thought of hairspray. Might have to give that a try... Liebe Grüsse, Silke

  30. I really like your tribute to Frida. She has a face of beauty as is her art. She will always be an inspiration. I also like your circles of colors. I agree hairspray seems to be better.
    Have a nice weekend

  32. Liebe Susi, deine heutige Frida macht mich nachdenklich. Nee, ich will gar nicht kritisieren, sie ist wunderschön und ich sehe immer mehr deine gnz persönliche Handschrift! Sie ist voller Leben und Bewegung, so sehe ich die reale Frida nicht in meiner. Fantasie. Sie ist oft traurig und das ist deine Frida nicht. Eher trotzig in der Haltung des Kopfes?
    Wunderschöne Arbeit und Interprettion, Susi. Ich wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende und schicke dir viele liebe Grüße und Knuddel!
