Experimenting with Mediums
This was a project I enjoyed doing in my Art II class these recent months. This project consisted of making custom colors of sand by mixing basic colors like red, blue, yellow, green, etc. to make more complicated and richer colors. The design was first drawn onto a piece of paper, then glue was applied to select areas of the design at a time. By only applying the glue to certain areas at a time, certain colors could be placed in certain areas. For example glue was placed on all the blue regions. Then blue sand was sprinkled on top of the entire piece and shaken off. When the sand was shaken off, the blue sand remained in only the regions it needed to because of the application of the glue.
