Here are a couple of pages from a chipboard book that I am altering/decorating.
The process is simple but each step takes some time for the drying process. (I leave mine to air-dry)
Start by adding gesso to the entire page, making textures at the same time. After this is dry, use modelling paste to create more texture – then gently push small embellishments in a pleasing manner into the paste. I have also used plaster gauze beside the Katy Keene image.
After this step has dried, spray or paint with your choice of colors – let dry after each color application, or they will mix, sometimes making a brown mess. (unless this is the effect you’re going for!)
After dry, use some rub and buff or your favorite wax paste to color the tops of the texture. I have used Viva Decor’s Inka Gold. I love this paint.
I have five pages for this book – three to go!
My sisters have suggested that I put them up on the wall, as a set of five – What do you think?
