This month the theme for our challenge at Country View Challenges is ‘Texture’. I have created a beautiful canvas with a faux rusted effect, very tactile and full of visual interest.
I began by masking off a circle in the centre of my canvas and applying ExpandIt with a palette knife. When heated this creates a bubbly textured surface.
I then gave this a coat of acrylic paint: Quinacridone Gold, and Quinacridone Burnt Orange.
Next I added a wash of Cobalt Turquoise Hue to tone down the brightness and deepen the shadows.
Metallic Lustre in various colours adds a rusted, oxidised effect, and highlights the texture.
I heat embossed a resin face with a couple of coats of Baked Texture in Chunky Rust.
Gel medium holds the face in the centre.
