These are dragonfly wing shapes cut out of various painted papers. From left to right: watercolour over candlewax, Liquitex interference paint on black paper, painted Bondaweb ironed on to paper, printed paper using bubblewrap (I think), and stencilled paint over a paper doiley.

Very nice! Can you tell me more about interference paint? How do you use it?

Hi Lisa,

Here's a link to it: http://www.liquitex.com/Products/paintinterference.cfm

I think it's a bit like Lumiere paints, or like when you add Pearlex powder to paints or a paint medium. I notice the website says that it uses Mica powder which is what Pearlex is. It works best on dark paper or fabric. I used it at college and haven't thought about it much till now but I have the Pearlex powder. I must experiment more with that.

Hi Ellemrac - It is part of a design board for my City & Guilds course at college.
