Happy Lunar New Year!
The base coat is acrylic, red and some orange. The I used a stencil, some gelatos and oil pastels for the background. I used some Inka Gold for the edges, and i had ordered some nice Chinese napkins, which I used for background, glueing them down with Gel medium.
Then I drew on the goat, from a photo I had in my "Inspirations' folder.
I shaded the goat with Dimensions stamp ink. While I was in Chinatown the other day, I found these amazing coins that had Chinese script and dragons on them, and attached a few to the canvas as well. Finally, I found the birdie sitting in the tree, gave it a rub with Dimensions ink, and added it as well. Lets hope that the year of the Goat brings us all health, happiness, and prosperity!
