Gold Line

I created the collage Gold Line using a variety of previously prepared papers and other materials; among those other materials were hand-dyed pieces of Sulky Paper Solvy, a water-soluable adhesive material meant to be used as a sewing aid, which I used to create textured paper castings.   Also used in this collage was a "mesh sandwich" I had made, using very loosely woved fabric as the base and, with gloss medium, embedding small pieces of plastic confetti and small paper scraps; after the gloss medium dried, I painted over the fabric with metallic acrylic paint.  A third element I used was "puff-"painted paper:   I made a "puff" mixture of shaving cream and Elmer's Glue, brushed it across Kraft paper, and sprayed it with assorted watercolor paints, including a metallic copper.  After that dried, I spread a protective layer of gloss medium over the entire surface.  When all the materials were created, I cut out an assortment of geometric shapes and used them in assembling the collage.  The final touch was to draw a gold line through the composition, using acrylic gold paint in a needle-nosed applicator bottle.
