Mixed media canvas

Hi Everyone Candy here with my latest mixed media canvas. This one is for an order for a friend from her Granddaughter to her Aunt... Just love this verse I'm not just an Aunt I'm a big cup of  Wonderful,  Covered in Awesome Sauce with a splash of sassy and a  dash of crazy I firstly applied white gesso to the canvas. Then applied the modelling paste and the mask all over. Let this dry Apply your sprays I used coffee and turquoise around the canvas I used a spray water bottle to dilute the colour and don't forget to dry between colours or you will make mud... It took me a while until I was happy with the colours just don't forget it will dry lighter. I glued the plastic frame using a good strong glue My canvas had a cut out piece where you place the photo underneath.  This is where I glued my frame. If your frame is glossy give a rub down with sandpaper to roughen so the gesso and sprays will take.
