In this video, I experiment with painting on Plaster of Paris and then scratching the finer details. My first impression was that the plaster absorbed the watercolour paint too quickly. To help fix the absorption of the watercolour paint, I covered the plaster’s surface with gouache.
The gouache helped slow down the absorption of paint. However, it mixed with the watercolour paint and lighted the colours. I will experiment with other surfaces for watercolour paint and my scratching techniques.
