Stewart Gill acrylic backgrounds

I've been painting tonight with Stewart Gill Byzantia paints, which I've had for just a little while and love. They are super saturated, very light reflective and really fun to paint with.

This is a recycled toilet paper wrapper--a very crinkly paper wrapper, glued to heavy cardstock with soft glossy gel medium. After it dried, I painted it with the Byzantia, using a number of colors.

I'll be working a booth on artist trading cards tomorrow, so I'll take these along to play with, along with a bunch of other goodies.


  1. Gorgeous - and I have SG Byzantia in all the colours - must try this for myself!

  2. This is amazing! It looks so textured and lush. Like the start of a fall scene - complete with changing trees, autumn skies & a fairy or two! :)

  3. Wow, love the colours- it makes me think of the fall. I love seeing what you have been "arting".

    I have given you a blog award, I hope you accept it, just go to my blog to see details....hugs to you
