Moulding Paste Mixed With Acrylic Paint..........
to begin i used a previously painted canvas that had random lines drawn into the paint while it was still wet with an old fork.
i repainted over the canvas roughly with white acrylic.
when dry i taped around the sides (green masking tape), to make a border.
at this stage i had no idea what i was going to paint. so decided to challenge myself & use green, not my favourite colour!
i just mixed colours with the moulding paste to see what would happen when they went onto the canvas.
the green was a bit dull by itself, so of course pink made an appearance to liven things up a bit, also not a favourite colour.
sometimes you just do what you have to do!
this shows some detail of the texture created by using the paint mixed with moulding paste & applied fairly thickly.
you can see some of the colour from the previous painting on the border.
