4″ x 6″ Weave on 5″ x 7″ Black greeting card
I learned this trick from my friend, Kordelia. I started with two 4″ x 6″ watercolor paintings that I did a long time ago. I cut one in 1/2″ vertical strips and the other in 1/2″ horizontal strips. I wove them, gluing the ends, and then painted a couple layers of transparent yellow iron oxide Golden Fluid Acrylic on it. I finished it off with a couple coats of spray varnish, then glued it onto the black greeting card.
I’m going to send it to Kordelia, to brighten her day.
