Burnt Umber acrylic paint for stain
I slightly dampened the clay then added more clay and textures. I let all this dry then applied an overall coat of matte clear polymer medium so I would have more control over my stain later.
BTW - This piece is named Behind the Veil and is a 12" x 12" mixed media piece on panel.
This piece was finished with a burnt umber stain then the eyes were added in the two window like areas. An acrylic pour was added over the eyes. To me it looks like a clay slab piece I could do with traditional clay but so much easier and faster this way. I think this has the potential for a series.
