Folded Paint Fairy

Day 102 – Folded Paint Fairy

Gliter Peach 365 Day 102This is an old technique that I haven’t used since I was about three years old but I was reminded of it earlier this week and I couldn’t resist re-enacting this old favourite.

I simply folded a piece of paper in half, put thick gouache paint on one half of the page in a half-silhouette of a fairy with wings (and swirls), folded the page and when I opened the page up again the paint had spread onto the opposite side in a symmetrical way to show a full fairy-like image.
