- cover canvas with generous layer of black sand texture paste and let dry completely (I let it dry overnight)
- color with 1 gelato and spritz with water, blending with finger; let color drip by holding the canvas upright to achieve desired look
- Let each gelato color dry before doing the next one. I only used 3 gelatos (isn't that crazy?) and the blending and drying of them one at a time created several different shades and hues of lovely color once it dried completely. Just like a rainbow!
- Add splatters of white gesso to canvas randomly with paintbrush. I used a 1/2" stencil brush.
That's it! Here's a couple close-ups of the canvas showing a bit more of the textural medley of color...
I really like how the black bits of sand still show through all that color--neat! :)
I hope you like it too! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a wonderful, creative and blessed day!
