Hello Beautiful People! Today I’m sharing a fun technique that creates beautiful results.
To start, spread glossy texture paste through a stencil onto Yupo paper. Be sure to clean your stencils and tools in water right away. Note: I cut my papers to fit the stencils/design of the stencils. A little color transferred from the stencil onto the Yupo – I just used that color as inspiration for the piece. 😊
After they all dried completely – suggest overnight, it’s time to drip, tilt and have fun!
See this short video to see how I dripped and tilted.
I repeated this process using different color combinations.
Variations and tips:
- use a color wheel to help you choose colors – choose colors that are analogous (next to each other), monochromatic (one color in tint, tone, and shade), pick a Triad (like in the video), pick any colors you like and see what happens!
- drip colors without blending solution or alcohol – the color moves slower, however it’s more intense and rich
- drip metallic, white, and/or black for added depth and bling
- in addition to/instead of the stencil, spread the gel around on the Yupo paper for your own design
- instead of Yupo, use a gesso’d piece of cardstock – different, yet cool results!
These pieces can be used stand-alone or integrated into other art pieces – for greeting cards or framed for wall art. There are so many possibilities, so many color combinations.
I hope you’ll try it and share what you make with us!!
