HAS ANYONE EVER TRIED TERRASKIN?

RED FLOWERS IN A GLASS VASE
PASTE PAPER FLOWERS
Have you ever used Terraskin as a painting surface?
 I read about it in one of my art magazines and immediately ordered some. Terreaskin reminds me of Yupo which I find difficult to paint with watercolor but both are a great substrate for mixed media art work.

Red flowers has an acrylic base in bold bright colors with oil pastel to punch it up even more. Paste Paper Flowers I again used acrylics for the background then glued my hand made paste paper into a pop art creation.

The most important factor is that I let myself go hog wild and didn't worry about creating a master piece.

It felt great to work on these two paintings.
