Stenciled and Painted Canvas using PoP Paint.

Posted on 21 Nov 2016

Hi everyone, on the blog today I am sharing another creative idea using your POP Paint making this easy painted canvas.
POP Paint is really versatile and easy to work with and with all those gorgeous colours in the palette you are spoilt for choice.detail2I used the mint and skyfall blue to create this feathered canvas with a watercolour look and love how it turned out.
step 1 – Use texture paste and a stencil to add an image onto your canvas.
step 2 – Once the stenciled image is dry, paint a layer of water onto the canvas. Then add some minted green paint using a large paintbrush
also dipped into water and add a light wash over the canvas. Use a heat gun to dry the wash a bit.
Then add some blue skyfall paint also with a fairly wet paintbrush in selected areas. Leave the paint to dry or heat set with a heat gun.
step 3 – Once the second layer is dry, go back to your minted paint and add some more green highlights to the canvas.
Add some more water to get a light wash in areas where you want the colour to be lighter.
step 4 – Once the paint is dry, mist the feather area with some gold shimmer sprays. and leave to dry.
step 5 – Use watercolourpaint and add some tiny black paint splats to the canvas for some added interest.
Leave to dry and watch as you created a beautifully colour washed intricate canvas.
Let the paint run off the sides of the canvas to add some interest, and leave some areas white.
To add some highlights to the stenciled image, you can use a graphite pencil to highlight the necessary areas.
And there you have a beautiful canvas made in a morning – perfect for a bathroom or special wall in your home or even as a gift for someone special.
