Clingfilm Art

This week over at the creative spark e-course, we have been playing with collage and  creating texture with gesso and acrylics, covering it with clingfilm and then smooching the paint around.  My  first attempt looked like this, I don't think I was generous enough with the gesso or the paint!

Getting more liberal with gesso and paint and then adding a little texture with sgraffito, my second attempt looked like this:

I have been continuing with the blind contour drawings as I really enjoy this process, I feel this is the best feather I have drawn so far and the words are taken from a Jonas Gerard video I watched about his creative process which is really fun to watch.


  1. Cling film must be one of the cheapest and most versatile art materials there is. The way you have used it here with gesso as well as paint is interesting, and looks great for texture.
    But the star is your feather - it's always amazing how blind drawing can produced such lovely results, and the way you have painted it is beautiful.

  2. I love using clingfilm, it works great on watercolour too! Your feather is BeAutiFul!!!! :)
