How to create textured painting...

This is a slight repeat but with how to steps to create this painting for Tutorial Tuesday. I've learned so much fun stuff from these ideas, I am honored to share mine!


step 1. Spray Paint your canvas, or paint spray paint was just quicker for me.

step 2. Cut out harlequin pattern out of anaglyptic wallpaper, so I didn't make any mistakes I made a mark on the parts to cut out.

step 3. paint your desired color, for this step I mixed my greens. Very randomly applied the paint, used my heat gun to warp it dry. I also used some copper embossing powder to really punch it up.

step 4. using mod podge, apply paper to canvas. (This is the worst part) Now leave it alone and let it dry.

step 5. mix a glaze medium, I used 2 parts glaze to 1 part paint and a bit of water. Mix well, apply with brush into all the nooks and cranies and then wipe off with a damp towel.

step 6. allow to dry and then hang!

Here's a close up on the details...

If you are interested in purchasing some of the anaglyptic wallpaper leave a comment, email me, whatever and we'll work something out. Trade even?? It's a fun product to use!

    I am having l nightmares over the Rhino Shield covering on my house, installed just over three years ago. Large bubbles are in the material that I can slit and hand peel the material, right down to the bare red cedar clapboards, which were also primed with an oil primer and finished with latex paint before the Rhino-Shield was applied. The material has a lifetime guarantee, so when I called several persons, including the owner Rhino Shield they all came over quickly.
    Rhino Shield said that the material was probably put on when the cedar was damp, and thus would strip everything and apply a new primer and finish coat, let dry, then apply new Rhino Shield, adding that there will be no more work till flashing is....
