I've been an enthusiastic fan of artwork by the professional painter Karen Hale for many years.
So imagine my jolt of surprised delight when I ran across this painting of hers!
Immediately I recognized that, as a last step in creating this artwork, Karen had applied a thin, white top layer of paint over a portion of my 6" x 6" Sassy Spray s465.
In its entirety, Sassy Spray s465 looks like this --
And altho Karen's artistry casts a powerful shadow on my own humble art samples, today's post includes two other art samples developed with help from this mask. My artwork on stretched canvas looks like this --

-- and a duo of close-ups look like this:

As those close-up shots show, I spread modeling paste and crackle past on my stretched canvas as a first step. After that had dried, I spattered on some Golden High Flow Acrylics and sprayed them with a little water. My last step was to add gold glitter gel (Golden Paints) with a small plastic art spatula.
Today's post offers one last print made with 6" x 6" Sassy Spray s465 mask. In this case, I started with a substrate of an old calendar page ....
... which I covered with a translucent layer of lavender acrylic paint. After that'd dried, I set the mask into place and, holding it securely with one hand, used a sponge brayer and this mask to add a topcoat of filmy white layer of water-thinned acrylic paint.
