Animating with gouache and glycerine on glass

Materials needed: gouache paint, bottle of glycerine (from chemists), paintbrushes, mixing tray, cotton buds, water, kitchen roll or tissues.

Camera and lightbox set up
I use a sheet of milky safety glass over the top of the lightbox, which diffuses the light and is easy to clean

Paint the image using brushes, fingers and cotton buds

Once shot of image is taken, blot it with a tissue to leave a 'shadow' of that image to refer to.  

Outline the new image over the top and wipe away the old 'shadow' (blotted) version

Repaint your new image. AND REPEAT!
