Metallic and Acrylic Meditation

Metallic and Acrylic Meditation - student project

I had so much fun following along the class and trying different techniques on a rainy day! There're so much potentials with using metallics in artwork. What's amazing about this is I can incorporate the skills that I've learnt from other classes. 

1. Abstract Liquified Metallics

I took Rich Armstrong's Digital Marbling class (please check that out if you haven't) and saw other students using glitter in their artwork. This class is the perfect opportunity I've been looking for to experiment the shiny materials with liquified paint. They go so well together!

I like that the metallic + acrylic combo makes a great background for adding text too. Very motivational on a rainy day.

2. Tiles 

Seeing the tile design demos in this class reminds me there're tons of different unique patterns from my culture that are worth exploring. I've incorporated some Chinese style patterns (the lotus, the clouds and the birds etc.) as well as some Henna/ geometric patterns.

3. Botanical Illustration 

Lastly I was following along Liz's botanical illustration class and thought it never hurts adding some magical glittery dust to a rose.

This class is really amazing and easy to follow along!! I really love all of Liz's classes!
