Ground Up Sidewalk Chalk/ Mixed Mediums Paint Formulation
Ground-up and sieved sidewalk chalk. The powder is blended with a clear acrylic binder. After mixing, a synthetic petrolatum is blended in and paint applied to cardstock.
A mild 'impasto' formis obserded on left. middle: an undercoat of hard pastel ( which has chalk) Right: a small amount of 'apple barrel" commercial acrylic paint ( Tuscan Teal) is added for value change.
This experimental mixed mediums paint formulation is inexpensive, different and worth developing by artists.
