Painted Deli Wrap Collage

Painting by Vicky Christensen, mixed media on 16 X 20 inch canvas 
I bought Sandra Duran Wilson's Acrylic Painting for Encaustic Effects because I love her artwork and wanted to learn some of her techniques. One of her examples begins with spreading globs of fluid acrylics on a substrate using deli sheets, then using the resulting deli sheets for collage elements. I borrowed that idea for this painting. I should note that Sandra's faux encaustic paintings also include a final layer of a mixture of gloss and matte gel to give the appearance of the wax surface of an encaustic painting, but I chose to omit that step on this painting.
