I have a new paint trick
for you today!
What says welcome
more than a hot cup of coffee.
I think it's a great way to greet your guests.
I'm sanding my painted canvas
to give it a worn look.
I base paint the canvas in light brown.
Then paint over with black, let dry, and sand.
Because it's canvas, you can see the nubby threads
exposed after sanding.
I like the way it gives an "old sign" feel,
and has a warm, worn appearance.
Chalk the back of your template
and pen press from the front onto the black canvas.
Use Folkart camel for the ribbon
and coffee cup.
Again, I sanded over those areas.
Use a liner brush for much of the detail.
Dry brush some white over coffee cup.
Grommets and ribbon on top...
So now you can add sandpaper
to even your canvas paintings.
I love to try new things with paint.
Have a great weekend painting friends!
