Green Pepper Press "gesso"
I was very pleased that the background techniques had returned on this superb site. This challenge involved playing round with gesso. I dont really use gesso as I didnt know what to do with it apart from use it as a sealer. I painted & stamped it under acrylics, stamped over acrylics, added embossing powder to it then painted over it and wipe it away quickly and finally my friend Linda suggested having a bit of patience!! and painting it on really thickly then stamping into it. I liked this last one the best! So I think I will use gesso again now I have an idea what to do with it. I am looking foward to what the rest of the GPP team come up with!!
