Impasto paint and sgraffito technique

Posted on: July 10th, 2013 by admin No Comments

A friend has recently brought me a bag of ash from her wood-burning stove, so perhaps it is time to have another go at this thickly textured work introduced to me by Anna Poulton and Stuart Whitehead at Sleningford. Paint is thickened with sieved ash, applied with a palette knife and scraped back to reveal the under painting, a technique known as sgraffito. I enjoyed doing this Vase Anemones and Sweet Peas.
