The Klimpt Method

Here is a new technique i am working on based on the old caught in crystal technique (but not messy) and the use of geometrical shapes as in some of the works by Gustav Klimpt.
So far i am really happy with the effect i am getting but i just want to try a few more things before i do a workshop with it.
Here are a few pics.

The flamingo stamp on the right is onto watercolour paper and painted with watercolours and the one on the right is using the Klimpt method onto stampbord and is much more textured and sparkly than my camera could pick up.
Techniques used were the same as the flamigo above and i love the way the lady looks as if she is wearing a mask in the Klimpt sample.


Here is a close up of the Deco lady but again my picture doesnt do her justice.

I will post more samples as i go along and please tell me what you think.

Smiles, Robert.

Oooh this looks great Robert. Love the texture and I'll be watching out for the workshop.

I'm still on hols (Orlando) with the family but been allowed a bit of 'craft' catchup time tonight. Back at the weekend and must say I'm really missing my craft stuff at the moment but not long now, Lol.

See you soon

I specially like the sunset-sky gradation in the flamingo design;it'll be interesting to find out how you achieve these sparkles. (I wonder how it would look on some of MC.Escher's geometric pictures?) Hope you're soon ready to share the technique. Best wishes, Rosslyn

Are you going to keep the Klimpt method a secret Robert?

No i wont keep it a secret but i want to do a few workshops with it and then i will probably make a video for the blog and show it on TV too.
