Technique Toodie!

LOl.. so I just couldn't get it out right this morning when Camille and I were chatting...
so Technique Tuesday is here... even if I cant say it properly...

Check it out!
Peeling Paint Technique
You will need:

a canvas or layout....... finished 
Acrylic paint
paint brush
Baby  wipes or paper towels

So I decided to do this on a canvas.. that didn't look finished..
it needed a little something something!

So the first step is to cover your canvas or layout with vaseline,
put it on the parts you want the paint to peel.
These parts will show at the end.
Paint your entire project with your acrylic paint
Make sure you paint right over the vaseline covered parts
Let your paint dry...
or use a heat gun if you are impatient like me...
Then use your wipes or a wet paper towel and start removing / pulling the paint!
And this is what it will look like in the end!

A couple of close ups... of where I pulled the paint

So thats it.
A very simple but very cool and effective distressing technique!
Hope you guys liked it..
hope it was something you havent done before but have to try now!

And come back tomorrow for or second Webisode Wednesday...
videos from our crop and a quick technique from the fabulous Candace!

Come check us out!
