Discussion

Skinning often emphasizes the weave of the canvas, since paint is removed from the raised portions of the painting's surface.[1] Skinning can also be extended to works on paper,in which a layer of the paper surface has been removed. [2] An example of skinning occuring to a paper object could be when sticky tape is pulled off the surface in an effort to restore the object to its original state.[3] --TFann (talk) 21:43, 26 October 2015 (CDT)
