Oculus by Madelei Oculus by Madelei
"Oculus" = Latin for "eye"

My own personal catalog of mediums/techniques. There are a billion others I could have included or haven't even thought of, so I just picked my favorites. :)

Book covers made out of polymer clay and found objects, painted with acrylics and Pearl Ex. Watercolor paper pages.

Wow this is an awesome idea, and Very well done! I was thinking of doing something similar, instead of eyes it would have been either dragons or fairies... possibly both. But unfortunately I can't draw or paint very well so the pages probably would have ended up being blank. :(

Wow this is really lovely! I love the range of tones that the eyes express when done in different mediums :3 I am curious what you mean by salt?

Madelei Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Professional Filmographer
thank you!
when you paint with watercolor and then sprinkle salt on it while it's wet, the salt will leave cool white patterns! then you brush the salt off when it's dry
