Easter Sunday 2016. Art reveal during our Sunday service. Letters die-cut from black contact were stuck on canvas and painted over with a rock-texture effect. During the service, the stone was rolled back (with dramatic fog and lights) and letters were peeled off to reveal "He is RISEN".

Watercolour word - Jesus. Prepared for a beginner's watercolour class at a craft camp. Masking fluid is used on watercolour paper to mark out the word. When masking fluid is dry, a quick wash of brightly coloured thinned-out watercolour paint is laid over the top. When the paint is completely dry (hairdryer can be used to dry), the masking fluid can be carefully lifted off with a hard rubber eraser (mine is brown and slightly transparent).
