Metallized Mylar tape and white artist tape: "I started using Mylar in 2008. At the time, I was mixing a lot of cut paper paintings that had more naturalistic elements like trees or figures, and I was looking for different surfaces to paint on to make them more interesting — sometimes I would paint over Xeroxes, or on drawing paper and cut that out. I got the Mylar because I could paint on the back and it held the paint differently. I had it lying around and I thought, what if I covered a whole painting in this? Usually I use a big 50-inch roll and cut into big sheets and glue down."
