A Spring Layout
March 23, 2013
Are you all ready for Spring? Today, I would like to share with you all a Spring layout which I've created using an XL acrylic scallop piece as the base. Clear Scraps carries many designs of acrylic XL pieces which are just amazing and fun to use!
I've attached the pattern paper from the back of the acrylic base to keep the glossy surface in front of the layout.
I've used the chicken wire mascil by Clear Scraps and some white gesso to create the textured hexagons on the acrylic surfaces. Simply just place the mascil on top of the acrylic surface and later use a palette knife to genrously apply some white gesso over it. Remove the mascil and let it dry. To add some colors to it, I've misted it with some colorations by Art Anthology.
Try to create some textures on your next acrylic projects using this simple technique. You'll be amazed with the results. Have fun experimenting!
