Hello folks, Nancy here, and welcome to a tutorial for a mixed media piece using black gesso, heavy body acrylics and a great new stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.
Looking through my wonderful collection of stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop, I came upon Stained Glass Daisies and knew I wanted to create the look of stained glass using their brightly colored acrylics and black gesso.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
140 lb watercolor paper
TCW657 12″ x 12″ Stained Glass Daisies stencil
foam brush/foam spouncer
TCW heavy body acrylic paint: Lemon Custard, Orange Slice, Kale Smoothie
fluid acrylic paint: citron, aqua, deep periwinkle, light pink, magenta
Signo white gel pen
Apply black gesso to watercolor paper with foam brush. Dry with heat tool.
Position Stained Glass Daisies stencil over substrate and secure with masking tape.
Apply TCW Lemon Custard, Orange Slice and Kale Smoothie heavy body acrylics to daisies with foam spouncer. (Lighten Kale Smoothie just a bit with citron fluid acrylic.)
Add fluid acrylic paint with paintbrush or foam spouncer on remainder of background. Dry with heat tool.
Using bubble wrap and fluid acrylic paints, add design to the background spaces. Dry.
Add doodling with white gel pen to the black lines delineating the background. Leave the black areas around the daisies alone so the flowers and stems “pop.”
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial for a mixed media piece using a wonderful new stencil, black gesso and heavy body acrylic paints from The Crafter’s Workshop.
Thanks for visiting!
