Summary Process:

Kraft card off-cuts glued to the page with PVA Glue before painting the whole page with white Gesso.

Sprayed with the Tsukineko and Adirondack spray inks and colours from the totem pole added to random pieces of layered kraft card.

Face drawn onto copier paper and painted with white Gesso before gluing to the page.  Colour and detail was then added using acrylic paint, Gelatos, and watercolour pencils.  

I made the garment and headband from natural Calico fabric which I stained with the same inks that were used in the background.

I found a totem pole image on the internet, printing it in draft quality so that the Ink was faint. I then used watercolor pencils to bring out details and round off any pixelated areas.
