Abstract Canvas With Dimension, Texture and Shimmer

Kathy here today to share a three canvas set that is inspired by similar ones I have seen on Pinterest lately with lots of layers of shimmer and texture in linear patterns. Each canvas is 4″ x 12″ canvases.

Art Anthology paints are very dimensional and work really well for creating layers of texture without adding additional mediums.  Let me show you how I created my project.

Art Anthology Stucco is a product that acts much light joint compound.  It doesn’t have a creamy consistency like Art Anthology Mud.  It creates a more course texture and adds lots of stiff peaks that are emphasized by the black glaze in this project.

To make the pieces more cohesive together, I continued the texture and pattern on the edges.  I  wanted to achieved the feeling that the color is spilling off the canvas. What do you think?

Look at the crackle created using the Kroma crackle medium.  It is subtle but adds so much depth.Texture and Shine Canvas3

Now it’s time for you to go create some texture and shine! Happy creating!
