FLAMING HEART CANVAS BY TERESA ABAJO
8 Jun 2016 10:15 AM -
This is a canvas I created using Prima’s Art Resin Flaming Hearts:
I started by adhering the resin shapes to the canvas using Gel Medium. When that dried, I covered everything with Prima’s White Crackle Texture Paste and allowed that to dry also. I then added some PVA glue with my fingers to the top left and bottom right and a few places in between, and sprinkled some Prima Mini Art Stones for some interesting texture.
Drying in between each layer, I added black gesso, and Prima Art Alchemy Opal Magic Yellow-Blue. I then placed a large sun ray stencil over the canvas and sprayed some Gesso through it. Some areas ended up too white, so I sprayed some Distress Spray Stain Chipped Sapphire over these.
I added some Prima Mica Powder Rust to a small spray bottle, topped it up with water, and sprayed it all over the canvas. It showed up really well on the heart that had been left black. I then added some indistinct handwriting with a white journaling pen, which mixed wonderfully with the Distress Spray Stain.
Because the Prima Mica Powders don’t have a fixative in them, it is necessary to spray a fixative on at this point or all the mica will eventually rub off (onto those beautiful white jeans you probably should be wearing in the art studio – don’t ask!).
I then embellished the little niche in the heart with a couple of red roses and a rolled up piece of book page. I also added a little metal filigree butterfly and some red diamantes to cover the join between the two resin shapes.
Here are some close up shots of the elements:
