Create Like a Child

Don’t you love it when you have time to just relax and play? Especially if it’s with art supplies! Even better when it’s new art supplies you’ve never used before!  This past week I finally had some free time on my hands to create again! Just for fun! I am excited to share with you my new found love, Modeling Paste, and a few ways I like to use it!

I have had this box of supplies from Deco Art for several months but no time to play around with them.  I was in my studio and saw the box laying there and just started going through it and grabbed a few things that I thought sounded fun.
 
The first thing I grabbed was modeling paste. I have never used it before and honestly had no idea what it was for. At first I thought it was just to add texture and depth to your painting.   Something that would be kind of like a relief
 
After playing with it I realized you could also use it with a stencil to create a really cool effect! I was fascinated thinking of all the different ways you could use it!

So, What Is Modeling Paste anyway?

Modeling paste is sometimes called molding paste. It is a thick, white paste that is primarily used to add texture and relief to paintings. Due to its thickness, it is best applied with a painting knife or a tool of similar rigidity.

Instead of just playing on my own in the studio I decided to do a Facebook live showing you guys exactly what I did and how you could use it!

Watch me Play with Modeling Paste!

I walk you through how to use the modeling paste for a relief and how to use it with a stencil! 
 
I also shared how you could add texture to Mixed Media Paper and then cut it out and use in a new mixed media piece of art. You can basically create your own raised scrapbook paper. I decided to cut a little bird shape out using my textured paper that I created.

Colorful Art!

One of the coolest things about this is once it dries you can paint it whatever color you want. I chose to use the Deco Art Metallic Gold that I have in my Amazon store.

Stencils!

I absolutely love using the one with Modeling Paste. This is the stencil that I used in the video.  There are so many different stencils out there that you could use in your own creation.

 Once your background is dry,  you could add anything to it. The possibilities are endless!  You could add words to it. Add more mixed media pieces or scrapbook paper to it or just add more paint and design elements. 

You can find all these supplies and more of my favorites in my Amazon Shop.

Make sure you stay tune this coming week and the weeks to come because I will be experimenting with new products each week and showing you guys what they can do!  It’s all over on my Facebook page!  If you ever miss any of the Facebook lives you can always go to the videos tab on my page to go back and view them or you can visit my YouTube channel
 
Have fun and get creative!
