Do you like my cabbage leaves?
I came about this idea by accident.
I was painting last weekend and had mixed
Old White, Antibes Green, Chateau Grey and a splash of Duck Egg into the same bowl.
One on top of the other as I layered.
I added a lot of water at the end of the day for a very pale wash.
( Not an overcoat KirbyWan!)
When I finished up, I had a bowl full of manky water.
I've never gotten around to making a coffee filter wreath,
so I grabbed a handful (about half an inch thick) and dunked them in, all the while thinking that
the paint would make them stick together and I'd have a bunch of nothing.
The next morning, I "peeled" my cabbages and forgot about the wreath entirely.
I hadn't expected a good outcome, so I'm sorry that I have no pictures.
I was very happy with my cabbage leaves.
I will probably tweak them a bit this weekend- will let you know what I come up with.
Grab some coffee filters next time you have a small bit of leftover chalk paint.
See what your imagination stirs up!
