Sneak Preview of Embroidery Stabilizer’s Power

This started out as a quite nice large swipe pour on a 26×20″ Yupo. There were a few details I wanted to change, but started using it as a spot to experiment with. Since then it’s gotten three layers of pours and various other splashes of acrylic paint on it, so it’s quite thick and getting heavy–but I can still lift it, so wil keep going on it.  Here’s what it looks like now. 

And, below are two close-ups of areas of particular interest, especially from the viewpoint of a pour.  You’ll also notice there’s lots of color and contrast, and a marked disjointedness of the whole thing.   Here’s those two areas of interest.  The first is the right upper corner where I  just poured some paint and then moved it around by blowing at it with a straw.  I was surprised at the effect this had.

Then, the second one is from the area of the bright yellow patches in the left upper quadrant.  Those two pieces of yellow are from the bottom of a cup that had paint from a previous pour.  I was able to pull it out, and just pressed it down on the painting.  Now I’m going to try and pull it all together using Embroidery Stabilizer.

Thanks for your comments.

  • Hi Merle, that is wonderful, that embroidery stabilizer???? Need to talk to you about that! I like the painting so far, curious to see what you do to that painting after that???? Helga

  • It’s fun to work with, because you can vary the opacity and texture that shows through from the painting below. We’ll do it sometime.
