Re: Boston Blade WIP

HOW DO YOU DO THAT!!!!!????? I use a protected edge razor blade as a scraping tool when doing watercolor...I pulled it out to look at it and IMAGINED (all I can do IS imagine) painting on it! Speechless at the detail and even more speechless at the beauty of it!

Re: Boston Blade WIP

Thank you Margarete! That is exactly what I hope people will do!!

Since these paintings are on actual steel razor blades, I prime them like a car, use automotive paint and then have them clear coated like a car. From there I have been having special frames made for them. This one is the first using the reflection control museum glass. Pretty incredible stuff!
