Today we are happy to have designer Steph Ackerman with an adventurous canvas to share.
Have you ever thought of using EasyCast® Clear Casting Epoxy to create a background for your canvas? Well, that is just what I've done.
To begin, mix equal parts EasyCast® Clear Casting Epoxy resin and hardener. Stir for 2 full minutes to properly mix the products.
Then pour into a new container and stir for another minute.
Then I poured the resin randomly over a 4"x4" canvas, using the stir stick to move the resin around. Allow to dry at least 12 hours before decorating.
To add color I used a baby wipe to "paint "Castin Craft Opaque Pigments in red, yellow and blue across the canvas. I also used Castin Craft Transparent Dye in green for a little transparent effect. I love how the resin picked up the colors and show off it's 3 dimensional effect.
For embellishments, I used a chipboard flower that I also colored with Castin' Craft Opaque Pigments
in yellow and red. The bird, the nest and leaves were created with Makin's Clay, assorted molds and dies.
Adventurous, was stamped onto a wood tag and all elements were adhered to the canvas with Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.
What do you think? Is this something you would try?
