Metallic Lustre Flowers

Posted by DecoArt on Jun 6th 2016

Use bright and contrasting colors to make a beautiful, textured canvas!

Items Needed:


Gather your supplies!

Instruction Image #1

Apply modeling paste through a stencil on to a Gesso Canvas. As I wanted this to be very textural, it's best to use quite an open pattern.

Instruction Image #2

Use a variety of textures and thickness. Make some areas smooth and add texture to others with the palette knife.

Instruction Image #3

Allow to dry for 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Instruction Image #4

Once dry, apply Media Misters Violet Shimmer, Turquoise Shimmer, Purple and Carbon Black. Because this design is flowers, I focused the lighter brighter colour in the center.

Add heavier areas of the sprays and blend the colours with a wet wipe.

Instruction Image #6

Gradually build the coverage until happy with the colour balance.

Then gently wipe back some of the colour on the raised textural areas with a wet wipe and kitchen paper.

Allow to dry naturally or with a heat tool.

Apply DecoArt Metallic Lustres gently with your fingertip. If you get too much on, just wipe off with a baby wipe.

Instruction Image #11

I used Fab Fuchsia, Brilliant Turquoise, Majestic Purple and Carbon Black
mixing them up with some of the turquoise on the purple areas to add contrast.
