What is a Triptych?
Hello all, where does the time go? It is once again that time of the month to show you my latest article and this month the theme was a Powertex Triptych. I looked up the word on the internet and it states that Triptych is a work of art (usually a panel painting) that is divided into three sections or three carved panels that are hinged together or can be folded shut or displayed openly.
Where to start your Powertex Triptych
For my article, I decided to use three square canvases as I did not have any spare panels and I wanted to try an ombre effect on my completed piece. I wanted texture and depth to my final piece and I had in mind already what colours I wanted to use. So without further ado, here is how I created my finished canvas.
For this Powertex Triptych you will need
Three canvases or panels
Easy 3D Flex
Pieces of material and lace
MDF pieces and or embellishments
I painted all three canvases with IVORY POWERTEX. Lay materials and lace in place. Keeping in mind that my canvas is one body of work.
I left these to dry overnight.
I made a paste with EASY 3D FLEX, Ivory Powertex and bit of water. Apply with a palette knife to add interest and texture.
These are the colours I used for the three canvases that were now dried.
I started with the darkest colour first, being the lovely dark blue pigment.
Then went up the canvases getting lighter with the colours, until I reached the top canvas which was a mix of the Green and the white pigment.
