PhotoAlchemy- How do I do that?

How do I do that?


       PhotoAlchemy is a process I developed in 2010. I have always loved photography and I was looking for a way to better showcase my photographs. 

        People ask all of the time…How do you do this?

 First you take the photograph….

       After some minor edits and printing, I apply the photograph onto a stretched canvas.

  For the most part, I use smaller sizes of the same image to create the photo-mosaic border.

   Several of my pieces are composed of original photographs are cut and sized to create a photographic mosaic

      These copies are cut into slices and applied to the canvas around the main image.

Occasionally I cut the smaller images into different shapes.

     Once the canvas is assembled, I glaze it and lightly sand it. Several different colors of  acrylic paint are used to detail the piece. Once dry, it is glazed a second time.

 Once the second coat of glaze is cured, I varnish each canvas.


  Each piece is a one of a kind regardless of the number of times I use the image.
