I also finished a painting I started two months ago. I finally got the inspiration I need to finish it. Whatcha think?
I started with an old canvas that I had painted a pineapple on last year. I used joint compound to cover the canvas to give it texture. I usually use heavy molding paste that you can buy at your local arts and craft store, but I didn't have any in the supply closet. Therefore, I used what I had available. If you do use joint compound, I would recommend sealing it before you start painting or your paint will get muddy. I just use clear poly spray.
You will notice a line going across the canvas. I used a paintbrush to paint on the joint compound.
This is what it looked like after the first few coats of paint.
I was not happy with it so I decided to add a brown glaze to make the texture stand out even more. After it dried, I then sprayed a gloss poly again to seal it. This is what it looks like now.
So there you have it! I am off to eat my red beans and rice and watch some college football! Have a great weekend!!!
