Moonglow: Light Modeling Paste Composition

Today I decided to use a sample jar of Golden Light Modeling Paste that I had hanging around.  This is done on a piece of illustration board, 7" x 12."  I put a light coating of modeling paste on the board with a putty knife and then drew on it with the rounded end of a paint brush handle.  It was painted with watercolors and then I dry-brushed Golden gold fluid acrylic over the surface.  The light modeling paste is very different from the extra-heavy gel - it is not as hard to work with and does not dry to a real hard surface.  It seems to be more fibrous - much like a refined paper mache product.  It takes the watercolor very well.

Another very nice effect,Barb. In your previous post messages, you were asking how I had found out about the online class, Texture Town. Here is a link to the course intro:

There is cost for the course, but there is no expiry date - you can do the exercises when you want, in the order you want. You have access to the instructors for as long as you wish.

I have to admit that I have not yet done any of the exercises, but have watched all the videos.
