Add Some Mail Art

Rainbow-RAK-small

 

Plain envelopes are really boring, so the color and fun of a mail art envelope is a gift.  If I have time and some extra material I have been trying to make the envelope match the artist trading card being sent out.  This has been pretty rare, it is easier to work up a batch of envelopes in advance and have them ready to mail out.

With the above example, I was noodling around with the leftovers for an artist postcard.  It is easy to paint on a paper towel with acrylic paints and then tear up the paper towel and collage onto a surface with gel medium.  Watered down acrylic paints create some fun effects.  I brushed more gel medium over the top to seal the pieces in place better.
