Tonight I am linking up with Paint Party Friday, hosted by the wonderful Eva and Kristen. I have a WIP that I will share. This is how I make the bubbles on my canvas for my leather sculpts. When this is finished I will link it up to 29 faces.
1st sculpt the face. This is a different type of leather than I normally use so I am not sure how it will hold up under airbrushing.
The paint is a water based house paint that I let set for weeks to evaporate as much water as possible. I stir it everyday. It becomes thick and icky. LOL
I paint a canvas in any old abstract way with acrylics for a base and let it dry.
Then I paint on the house paint and let this dry 24 to 48 hours.
Next step I take my heat gun and rotate my movements over the canvas. Be careful not to actually burn the paint and canvas.
Out side is a good place to do this. If you try it PLEASE be careful.
Depending on how thick the house paint is determines how big the bubbles are.
Allow this to set without touching it. LOL Next step is to paint this with an airbrush.
I will try to get this finished tomorrow.
Happy Paint Party Friday
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
