I thought I would play with some texture paste and some paint. This is what I came up with a couple of mini canvasses and I love them. Just slap some texture paste (I used Daler-Rowney) with a pallet knife used an old ball point pen and the knife to make some imprints then left it to dry over night. You can speed the process up with a heat gun and leave to go hard for a few hours, as I did. then get your acrylic paints out, two contrasting colours. Lightest first, leave to dry, then the darker one and while still wet get a damp kitchen towel and wipe away some areas to intensify the texture and hey presto cute mini canvass (just over 2x2) as a gift or a little decorative item.
And as I was playing with paste I grabbed Paris kitten so cute (but not to small now!) and placed her paw in the messy stuff lol I tried to do it with 'The Dude' but I ended up with one white paw print dotted all over the kitchen before I could grab him and wipe it clean So funny, any way Paris was much more accommodating and this is a 1x2 canvass. Process as before only I used green and blue paint. Why not have a go yourself? you don't have to use a kittens paw (would be good for a baby foot/hand print) or you can just use what ever you have lying around to make impressions. I hope you like these cute little items. Love Dawn xx
