_Orange Cruciform_ is a 20"X16" mixed-media collage. Using acrylic paints, I covered watercolor paper with successive glazes of warm colors, orange-dominant. After that dried, I added a layer of cool greens and blues; quickly, while this layer was still wet, I splashed the surface with rubbing alcohol. Next I added more texture using several homemade stamps brayer-coated with semi-opaque acrylic paints. I then used the same stamps, with assorted acrylic paints, to alter translucent medium-weight mulberry paper. After cutting these papers into various shapes, I collaged them onto the substrate with acrylic gloss gel. I also added pieces of ultra-sheer white mulberry paper. Watercolor pencils were used to add fine details.
