How to Create a Glue Art Canvas with Aleene's Burnt Brown Bag Technique


Looking for vintage craft ideas that still look modern and cool? Learn how to create a glue art canvas with Aleene's burnt brown bag technique from Candace Jedrowicz. This is an easy project that can be hung up on a wall in your home. It's truly a piece of homemade art.

The burnt brown bag technique is perfect if you want to create a metallic look for your piece. Be careful when using this technique however, because it requires glue and an open flame. Move the canvas directly over the candle and watch as the glue begins to bubble and crackle. Your canvas will look black and burned - that's ok! Just wipe off the soot after your piece has cooled and settled.
