I like to see how far I can stretch techniques. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much but at least I keep playing around and learning from all of it.
Today, I am sharing a new project as part of ColourArte‘s Design Team. I wanted to see if my Munny, a vinyl figurine bought eons ago, would accept an acrylic pour and what I could do with it.

I chose to do two different dirty pours (when you create layers of prepared colors into one same cup before pouring it): one for the body and another for the head. Too ambitious ? Maybe. But I did it anyway 😀
Because I had an intent in mind (marrying the Earth and the Sky), I picked three different browns for the body and three different blues for the head. White was the “linking” colour.
One mistake was to forget that the paint consistency needed for a dirty pour is indeed different than the one for a puddle pour. So my paints were a bit too thin. It turned out not bad, but I had high expectations for this (good thing is I have other Munnies waiting to be painted, as I used to be a hoarder).
What is the most unexpected surface you ever chose to paint on ? I am curious to see how far we can go with that idea that we can work on anything.
