When you create your art do you ask what if? That’s what I did when I created this rose. What if I use modeling paste and try to create something 3D?
Let me start by telling you what I used to create it.
- TCW722 Large Rose
- TCW9004 Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste
- TCW727 Flower Dance
- TCW9006 Gel Medium Gloss
- TCW9053 Mixed Media Board 6×6
The Crafters Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
On a piece of deli paper (you can use any lightweight paper) I added the Rose stencil with Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste and put it aside to dry.
I added the Flower Dance stencil to a piece of cardstock with various shades of green and yellow.
When the paint dried, I cut them out of the paper. Now I have lots of vines and leaves for my roses.
I painted the mixed media board with white paint and added some collage pieces. I set it aside to dry and started to work on my rose. I cut out three roses from the deli paper. To make it 3D, I cut out the individual petals and tried to add a tiny fold in the petal. That fold is what I used to glue it to the other large rose.
I used gel medium to attach the petals and create a dimensional rose. I didn’t use all the pieces since this was an experiment I wanted to see the end result as fast as possible.
The yellow around the edges is because I don’t clean my stencils. I wanted to keep it white so I painted the whole thing in paint and added a little pink to the edges. When you rewet Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, paint will soak back into it. I only added paint around the edges.
To finish the piece I added the leaves, vines and the third rose to the board with gel medium.
I added some gel medium to the back of my 3D rose to finish it.
There are number of things I would do differently. I might paint the deli paper first, color the modeling paste, and maybe even use more than one modeling paste rose to create a 3D effect. It still was a great experiment.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
