I see Somthing New !!

Last night I wanted to test the Karen Pharr Studios base extender over colored pencils to see how it works.
I drew a simple picture, went over it with the base extender and let it dry. Once dry I ironed to set everything and then washed it. A good wash with Soap and water since I was testing.
No runs, No loss of Color. Still very Soft.
Another great way to use the base extender.

New Underwater View

The most fun I have had in a while, Creating this Underwater piece. Scrunching fabrics, melting others. The frame just sets it all off.
