rusty relief painting

As many of you know I love 3-D and I keep coming up with new ways to use it- I am on a mission to use it in all kinds of different ways! This time around I used 3-D paint to create rusty relief paintings on canvas.

Picture 2
I used my stash of Scribbles 3-D Paint Pens.

And I doodled (of course) in white all over the surface of a canvas that I painted in a rust color (I was inspired by rusty metal for this project).

I filled the entire surface with my designs.

Once the 3-D paint was dry I painted over the top of my designs

and then wiped the paint away- just enough to pull the pigment from the top of the dried 3-D paint.

The result is a relief painting that has wonderful dimension and texture on the surface and because of the color, has the feeling of rusty metal.

Hi Alisa,
Great idea, I also like the two patterns together. What did you paint on canvas or wood?

Very good idea for layering. Thank you.

I don't get the feeling of rust as much as I do Henna. It is a wonderful use of puff paint and as always your designs are terrific.

Ooh I like this technique. I was thinking it would look good in other metal colors and antiqued as well.

Wonderful Alisa! The rusty paint on top of the dimensional paint gives the piece a very cohesive look. Just love it!

Now that project is right up my alley. I assume since you shared it, it's public domain? I'd love to try it. Thanks for the fun.
