Playing with Textures!

Playing with Textures!

Experimenting with modelling paste, handmade stamps and other objects to make textures which were then coloured with acrylics.

  1. Neat. They’re all so different, even though you used the same color. Where do you get modeling paste? It looks like so much fun.

    • Yes, some of them were on paper without gesso, so where the paper sucked up the paint it went darker. I got the modelling paste for £1.99 from ‘The Works’. If you’re not from the UK, you might not have heard of it! I’ve been playing with stencil making today, another thing to use with modelling paste, so I’ll upload the photos sometime soon 🙂

  2. I love these textured artworks! I really like this colour. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by my blog too.

    • Thanks 🙂 You clearly have a better grasp of WordPress than I do! I can’t work out how to get bigger images or how to add a contact me section!

      • I’m new too, still learning. 🙂 After you upload, you can choose ‘large size’ or ‘full size’. It’s at the right panel, scroll down to the bottom. I had difficulty with this at first too!

        For the contact page, go to the page where you write your new post. There’s a left panel, you should be able to see ‘Pages’. Click on it and add a new page. There is a button somewhere where you can add your contact form.

        It’s hard for me to tell you here cause I’m replying you from my phone. Can’t take a picture from my laptop to show you. 😦

  3. Hello Rainbow Fingered Crafter! Your ‘contact section’ on your WordPress was setup successfully!

    Your pictures are now bigger too! What I do to my images are, I usually download it from my camera and edit the size so it will not take up a lot of kilobyte (kb) in WordPress.

    Yes, it’s called the magic foam??? Saw it on YouTube recently. I’ve tried it with normal craft foam sheet, it kind of worked too! 😀 Have you tried it?

  4. Hi AA,

    Do you mean heating it and pressing stuff into it? Yes I’ve tried it. I’ll post some of the results when I get a minute. I just used ‘funky foam’ that you get in the kids section of The Range and Hobbycraft and places like that.
