This canvas is a follow up to previous tin tooling projects that I have shared with you and will allow you to use those techniques that you’ve been practicing but will encourage you to incorporate tin on a canvas surface. This is meant to be a loose project where you can be very creative and use the media in a slightly different way. This project will take a few posts to share the entire project with you, stay tuned.
Tin of your choice, I used 36 gauge aluminum.
Stylus, tracing paper, scissors
Canvas size of your choice, I used a 6”X12”
Assorted scrap booking papers.
Alcohol ink colors of your choice
Assorted acrylic paint colors to be used on the canvas
Deco Art Decou-page
Choose any paint colors that you prefer, I used shades of blue, greens, and metallic gold that I blended together onto the canvas using a slip slap triple loaded brush technique and my fingers. Use paint colors that work with your décor and eventual plans for this project. I had just purchased a set of Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions Stencils and chose to use them on this canvas with various shades of pink and white. This type of painted background is very subtle and is meant to showcase whatever is placed in the foreground. I then added Washi Tape onto the canvas for interest.
