Creating Textures with Holbein Acrylic Mediums - Step 1

For our Christmas project, daughter Jamie and I tackled a 60" x 30" painting project together. Painting is our kind of fun! Here's a short video of the first step - Creating Textures. Check back to see the series of steps to complete this painting. 

Here's a close-up of the textures after the colour was applied.

For your next painting, go ahead and make textures with Gesso, Gel Medium and Pumice, before you lay in colour! Apply the products with short, random strokes using a piece of cardboard or palette knife.

The effects that you can create are amazing! Just be sure to allow the mediums to dry well before you apply paint.
