Now that the main body of the binding structure has been completed I can begin to create elements of the art work. The working base for this is a sheet of conservation board which I have sized with a PVA Yamato Nori mix.
Next to layer small sheets of a mould made paper, overlapping as I work
This helps to create a texture.
And when painted the texture becomes visible. The ironic thing is that all of this may never be seen again. I need this for the next stages...
Layering up adverts and the like, layer upon layer. Coats of paint and more layers.
On and on until I decide to start to tear away the surface.
The aim is to create a wall covered in posters, adverts and the like. Only small elements will be used in the final binding.
