fluid acrylics + fiber paste + comb = raised linear texture
Discovering new ways to add texture to acrylic backgrounds. This abstract coppery lime background was painted on 9 x 12" watercolor paper. The raised texture was created on a layer of Golden fiber paste applied with a plastic gift card. Fiber paste forms a raised texture that can be shaped or painted ~ feels rough like sandpaper and holds texture. Next, I painted Golden fluid acrylic paint on top of the fiber paste with a plastic gift card. Next, I textured the paint with a comb to create the look of a grid. Playing around with layers of fiber paste and paint, creating grooves and texture, so fun!
Other journal pages created with fiber paste include Elemental Grid, a Journal Lettering Experiment, and the first background in Art & Visual Journaling. Another example at Flickr and a finished background at Altered Catalog: Adjectives.
The first experiment was described at Linear Textures in Red ~ followed the same process without fiber paste. Did you know? Art supply manufacturer sites often have detailed product information and examples. Lots of knowledge at the Golden website.
