It’s mid-June, and time for me to post the last background technique for the month. From here on out, it’s time to play, practice, and post your pieces!
Today’s background technique is perfect for your altered book covers. However, the great thing about it, is that it works on all kinds of things besides books! Try this technique on canvas, wood (boxes), paper mache`, or whatever you choose. You’re going to love it.
Things you’ll need for today’s project:
- Base (whatever you’re working on)
- matte medium
- medium paintbrush
- tissue paper
- acrylic paints
- spray webbing (optional)
