Hi Susan,
What's the deal with layers of gesso?
What is inolved?
I've done this technique with layers of medium and varnish very successfully
with kids.
Just takes a lot of patience to build up the layers.
I just finished a piece of work for a show using photo transfer methods and
then worked into it with pastel.
Turned out cool.
