Nun too bright!

This started as a surface techniques demo for my students. We had covered stamping and Crazy Easy Transfer Painting when I decided to do Elmer's glue and black paint. When it had finished crackling, I saw the shape as the skirt of a nun's habit. That lead me to doing a water slide transfer of a nun that faded out on the bottom when a story came to me that Rome had sent her to a tropical muslim country to convert the pagan babies (that's what they told us in grammar school, believe it or not). Nun's habits does look like a burkas to me.


Pagan babies! I've not heard that phrase in a long time. I love this piece; it brings back grade school memories.
