Medium: Stephen has developed a new medium and termed it Dialuminism ("light passing through"). To begin, he sketches the composition with modeling compound and gesso, then he covers the entire canvas (texture and all) with metal leaf. Next, he applies several ultra-thin layers of oil paint, adds his special wizard's concoction of solvents and finishes with several layers of clear resin. The result is a painting that is multi-dimensional, reflective, and essentially back-lit.
