#3 frottage mini tutorial

Rip and arrange your frottages (rubbings) into a pleasant composition paying attention to the elements of design. I teach using five elements, line, shape, color, value, and texture. Move the images around until they feel right to you, and glue them onto the substrate with a light application of good old Elmers glue. I have used this glue for years and have not had any yellowing of my papers. Note: The bottom section of the icon frottage was ripped off and part was used on the upper right and mid left side of the collage. Unify the shapes using colored pencils, acrylic paint, chalks, etc. On this painting I used white acrylic paint and added a touch of gold leaf. Detail on post #4.
