Perfectly Imperfect: Modeling Paste

I love to layer modeling paste on top of modeling paste. It gives my art lots of layers and textures. It can be tricky and like you’ll see it’s not always perfect. I used the following to create my piece.

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.

To start I mixed paint with the White Modeling Paste and then used it to add the Cosmic Music stencil to the substrate. To layer modeling paste, the first layer must be put on thin.

When the first layer completely dried, I can add the next layer with the Summer Meadow stencil and white modeling paste.

I continued to add more flowers with white modeling paste. As you can see it’s not perfect. By accident I hit the stencil and it moved. This technique takes time and it’s never completely perfect.

While the modeling paste is still wet you can try to clean up the extra modeling paste. I usually use the end of a palette knife or any sharp instrument.

To finish the piece I painted the flowers and hand wrote the words.

Another trick to hide any mistakes or unwanted spots is to splatter paint. It works perfect and looks perfectly imperfect. How do you hide your unwanted areas in your art?

If you use TCW Stencils, stamps and mediums in your art, we would love it see it. Please share it with us on our Facebook pageInstagram, Twitter, and Pinterest using hashtag #tcwstencillove.
