Title: Gytov Blossoms
Size: 8″ x 10″
Gytov Blossoms was created using painter’s caulk, acrylic paint, polymer clay, beads, and a felt cutout mounted on canvas board
Gytov Blossoms is a mixed media piece that was an experiment with painter’s caulk. The floral shape in the center is a foam drink coaster. I bought a pack of them in a few designs but wasn’t sure what to actually do with them.
Painter’s caulk is a very versatile medium. For this piece, I mixed it with a purple ink. I then used a different, but identical coaster, and brushed the purple caulk onto it. I them repeated stamped it on the canvas board which was painted blue.
By itself, it was a bit dull. I decided to take one of the unused coasters and mount it in the center. The painting still lacked something. I took purple polymer clay and extruded it in the circle shape. I then addd the dark yellow beads as an additional accent.
