From the Designer: "An easy mixed media home decor project for the new artist to the advanced. The artist can create as many layers on the canvas as desired. The canvas can be new or up-cycled since the Rust-oleum paints give great coverage."

Materials List

  • Rust-oleum Gloss Rich Jade
  • Rust-oleum Gloss Satin Ink Blue
  • Testors Gold Ore 79630 Glitter Paint
  • Testors Craft Paint Gold Dore Dorado
  • Testors Craft Estrella De Rock
  • Testors Super Glue

  • 10 x 12 pattern tissue
  • Brick Stencil
  • Black Crackle Paste
  • Spray water bottle

Instructions

  1. For this project, I repurposed a 16 x 20 canvas from another project started and never finished. The papers and paints on the canvas gave the new project more layers of dimension under the Rust-oleum paints. Following the instructions on the Rust-oleum Gloss Rich Jade, spray one-half of canvas, let set a few minutes. Paint the other half of the canvas with the Rust-oleum Gloss Satin Ink Blue, over lapping the Rich Jade. Be sure to paint the sides of the canvas. If necessary, spray a second coat for good coverage. Let dry.

  2. Next day, apply a layer of Mod Podge Matte to the canvas. Spritz 10 x 12 pattern tissue with water. Carefully lay on the layer of Mod Podge Matte. Apply another layer of Mod Podge Matte over the tissue. Let dry.

  3. With brick stencil, randomly add black crackle paste, set aside to dry. Lightly spray with Trestors Craft Paint Gold Dore Dorado, let dry.

  4. Mix Trestors Craft Paint Gold Dore Dorado and Trestors Craft Estrella De Rock, apply lightly around the edges of the canvas to create a frame.

  5. Finally attach Peacock Feather with Trestors Super Glue.

I have been wanting to make a picture n canvas with mixed media but have not done it yet but after reading this tutorial I cannot wait. I love the feather for a nice texture and I did not know that you can use tissue paper and mod podge for texture and the bricks are done with a stencil. This is so easy and makes it where anyone can make their own picture now. This looks like so much fun and a great family project too. I love it. Another great idea.
