Textured Stencil Art

I was sick with the flu for 2 weeks but I can't sit still even when I'm sick so I did a few crafts and some art! I must have needed some color because this is bright, lively and neon!

I used texture paste and neon paints ( glow in the dark)!

I got these last year from Amazon and I don't remember how much they cost but I'm frugal so I bet I didn't pay more than $10 for them.

The stencil on a solid glossy black painted canvas. Such a pretty stencil!

I mixed the paste and paint together until I got the shade of color I wanted to use. There is no recipe for this part, a spoonful of paste goes a long way! Just slowly mix in the paint until the color is right and it looks like cake frosting. Then add the paste mix to the stencil just like you would with just paint but I used a plastic knife and spoon to smooth the paste out.

I will say you need to be quick because the paste will harden quickly and the stencil might stick to the canvas!

After I finished that part I let it dry. I then went back over the paste with just paint to darken the color and used a glossy black acrylic for covering up any other little mistakes.

One more stencil with some inspiring words!

So cool looking!

I sealed with a clear gloss spray paint so it would be shiny! Well I do what I love everyday even when I'm sick !

All comments and questions welcomed! Thanks for looking at my "sick days" art!

    How did you get it to puff up was it the textured paste?
