Texture Week - by Hannah Oxberry

Hi all, Hannah here, this week is all about texture at Tando Towers! By following a few simple steps you can you can create a fabulously texted tag too.

Firstly, paint your greyboard tag in DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish Primitive. Next, use a palette knife to spread a little DecoArt Texture Sand Paste in areas, stipple the medium and drag the excess over the tag. Once dry, select your stencil and introduce DecoArt Media Modeling Paste through the stencil, again using a palette knife. Your final texture layer is DecoArt Media Crackle Paint, draw this across the tag and over areas of the raised modeling paste.

Once your texture layers are dry, colour the tag using wash layers of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics in Paynes Grey, Raw Umber and Yellow Oxide. Work up in intensity, adding neat paint to the wash. Darken the edges of the tag by applying Paynes Grey using a sponge.

On to a heart embellishment, paint a layer of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Cadmium Red, and apply a layer of Crackle Glaze. Once dry accentuate the crackles by adding Carbon Black Antiquing Cream. Wipe away the excess to leave the antiquing cream in the crackles.

Finally, to really make the textures pop; dry brush the entire tag in DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish Everlasting.

I hope you enjoyed this project, until next time - happy crafting!
