During the second week of the workshop, we focused on the water-based glazing : the dextrin glazing.
It’s a non polluant mixture of of vinegar, water and dextrin (starch). This glazing allows you to work on your surface as long as you need, even if the paint dries. You can erase and restart easily. To fix it and work again on it without altering your base layer, you will need to varnish it with an oil-based glazing first.
This kind of painting is perfect to do the stone patinas. It gives a lot of effects. Here are some samples that I made. There is no thickness or added material, it’s super flat!
At the end of the week, we started working on a larger panel. We were asked to achieve two kinds of stones and a sky to review the different techniques that we saw previously. We will finish it during the third week of the workshop, I can’t wait !!
