Ms. Cutler uses metal leaf to enhance and highlight the illusion of simplistic grandeur. She uses several different types of metal leaf in her work: 21 and 23 kt. gold, white gold, copper and variegated metal leaf. The variegated leaf is one of her favorite metals. It is a heat-treated composition that creates colorful patterns on the surface of the metal. You will see this metal in quite a few of Ms. Cutler’s paintings. She discontinued the use of sterling silver metal in her painting because it tarnished, and exchanged it with white gold.
Ms. Cutler uses two forms of acrylic mediums: a liquid acrylic, which is a more fluid version of acrylic having the consistency of ink that produces some amazing iridescent colors, and a more concentrated condensed acrylic. She also uses ink instead of water along with her acrylic to eliminate water’s diluting effects on the colors. She chose watercolor paper for its texture, surface and durability. Unlike canvas, watercolor paper creates the illusion of delicacy that works well with her painting style. She did however experience some degree of difficulty when applying metal leaf to the surface of the watercolor paper because of its absorbency. Through trial and error, she finally came up with a solution that worked.
