Paper Dog aka Salsa

I may live in a digital world, but my love affair with paper has by no means diminished.
Many of us have some form of paper or another within hand’s reach most of the time, and yet we never think about the extraordinarily beautiful pieces of paper art that we could create with them if we ever took the time to try. The next time you’re about to throw out a grocery receipt or chewing gum wrapper, try to fold or cut it into something beautiful. Maybe you’ll get a flash of inspiration and create a work of art!

Here is a piece of work I created in November 2014. Paper Dog aka ‘Salsa’.
Created entirely out of used A4 paper.

Note:
I had a Shih Tzu dog called Salsa. Had to give her away as I moved countries. The look she gave me (as the new owner took her away from me) still lingers in my memory.

Cookie Jar. Pebeo Moon and Prisme

The French art material maker Pebeo has come out with two amazing range of paints for fine artists and crafts people. Two ranges of opalescent, reactive paints that create an array of infinite effects, designs and textured appearances. Magnificent abstract effects are the result. Available in a variety of mixable, brilliant colors, including pearlescent and metallic shades; they can be used to create an opaque, marbled effect on almost any surface, including glass, wood, Plexiglas, canvas, ceramics, metal, and more.

Fantasy Prisme. Opalescent and daring, the colours reveal stunning honeycomb and textured effects when applied generously on horizontal surfaces.

Fantasy Moon. Pearly, opaque colours that immediately render a hammered or marbled effect when applied in thin or thick coats.

I was commissioned to work on three Porcelain Cookie Jars. I have never worked on irregular porcelain surface, and I knew for sure that acrylic won’t work. My art supplies store (Color Note, Doha) had introduced me to this new range of Pebeo product, which are solvent based. With boldness I embarked on painting with these Pebeo paints. Impressed with the effect. Cant wait to work with these solvent based paints on canvas.
