I'm hoping someone would be able to answer a question for me. My process at the moment is creating texture on canvas by lots of different methods. Be it fabric, paper, tile adhesive, gesso, beads, paints, etc, etc. I then paint over the entire piece (quite expressively) with acrylic. The end results are highly decorative , textured works, in bright vibrant colours.
My question is would I be able to use oil over mixed mediums such as these?. I'm wondering if I coat everything in gesso first would it work?. I'm just getting a feeling that the blending effect and variations of colours would look so much more vibrant with oils.
