These first two details are from a sculpture in process—Sculptural Elements 8-Openings. The front of the surface has a transfer that is in pieces and accents with Gilders Paste. Most of the transfers I use on my artwork are altered further on the surface of the work. Over these sides of the sculpture is wire and other elements for texture.
These next three pieces are the digital transfers that have been applied to Sculptural Elements 8-Distressed. As I work on a sculpture the sides are finished first so they can be coated with a spray to protect the surface. When the surfaces are dry then I start to work on the three dimensional elements that finish the composition.
The transfers have been distressed with scratching and other techniques to give them a weathered look.
On the Edge 2 below is also in the works and has all the digital transfers and the protective sprays finished. Now I will be using wire and other attachments to finish the second piece in this series.
