This is an original 6x6" texture piece painted by me of a piece of coral emerging from the waves. All of the white lines were painted by me with a small white brush (and a very steady hand). The base layer of texture is created with molding paste, and this particular layering of molding paste with multiple layers of oil paint on top is something I've perfected. Over the last few years. I've sold over 30 pieces in this style.
The base layer of molding paste takes 1-2 weeks to dry, and the overlayer of oil paint takes up to a month to dry as additional oil is added in, which give the final glossy effect. The last layer with fine white lines takes about a week to dry and is the most time-consuming, but meditative in quality to apply (hey, I wouldn't keep making them if I didn't enjoy the process!)
The white lines on the wrap around the edge on the left and lower sides, creating a beautiful dimensional effect.
I hope you consider adding this beautiful gem to your collection! Please feel free to contact me about any additional questions you have about the piece, for more photos, or for a similar commission piece. I love having a personal connection with my collectors.
