Here’s the attendant duck with her paint job completed. Isn’t she beautiful? It’s going to be hard covering any part of her with a costume after all that painting. So perhaps her dress will be minimalist.
For the record, the paper clay coated with gesso is a wonderful painting surface. I suppose it would have been obvious to use regular white gesso but I used Liquitex clear gesso because it’s what I have used on my gourds with great success. And I used it on the gourds because I wanted the golden brown color and the texture of the gourds to show in the background of what I was painting.
As much as I love sculpting – and drawing – I just don’t feel quite right without a brush in my hand. So finishing this little duck was being home.
