Clinic Prep

I’m prepping for a clinic at a local TCA meet next Saturday. This is one of three similar pieces. One will just be a stack .. carved and distressed .. one divided up into about four stages .. paint, AI stain, shadows, highlights and pigment wash and then this one which will be complete. I’m just at the stage with highlighting the rock with white. The ‘rock’ .. is a stack of two different kinds of foam, couple layers of 3/8″ sheetrock, cork (squares) and cork (shelf liner). Letting dry tonight .. tomorrow do a pigment wash (brown tempera washed with water into crevices etc.) .. then when that dries (prob next day or late tomorrow) .. rubble, rock, sand, dirt secured with white glue & water. The day after that paint and final staining .. should be ‘good nuff’ for a clinic.
