ATC Monday's #003 - "Graffiti Heart"
Part of the ATC project is to record a catalogue of my favourite techniques, this one called "Graffiti Heart" is both simple and effective.
List of products used;
DecoArt Media Modeling Paste White
DecoArt Media Gesso White
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Paynes Grey
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Cadmium Red Hue
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Gold
Dare 2b Artzy Tracy Wienzapfel Stamp "Hearts Swirls & Doodles"
Using a palette knife, spread DecoArt Modeling Paste White on to a MDF ATC.
Using a heat gun, dry the surface of the modeling paste. Take your stamp and dab the surface with water, press it evenly in to the surface of the paste to transfer the image.
Wash the stamp off in warm water.
Once the modeling paste is fully dry, paint the ATC is White Gesso.
Wash over the surface of the ATC using Paynes Grey, building up darker layers and allowing the paint to pool in the textures.
Using a soft flat brush and a very small amount of White Gesso, dry brush the whole of the ATC to pick out the highlights.
Paint in the heart with White Gesso and edge the ATC in White to create a boarder.
Paint in the heart with Cadmium Red Hue and dry brush with Metallic Gold to highlight.
Finish the piece with a word sentiment.
