today I have for you my project for August Art Recipe on Prima blog.
I really like creating projects on canvases. When I use them, I'm not worried about the amount of paints and media as this surface is much more durable than paper. This time I used a round base and I built a multi-layered, rich composition.
There are many fantastic ways to use Art Alchemy paints. I use them as watercolors - I spray the water immediately after application, but remember you have to be fast. After drying, the paint is permanent. When you use the paints this way, you get a more delicate pastel look, when used straight from the tube (or jar), you will get brighter, more saturated tones. These paints are also perfect for splashing and we get beautiful glossy dots. They also work brilliantly with Art Alchemy Waxes and you can see this effect on the seahorse which I painted with paints and highlighted the details with one of the Waxes.
