On all of these I just used semi-gloss house paint.  If you paint it on the raw canvas watered down it gives you that mottled look.  Then I use the end of a paint brush dipped in the paint and splatter away!  The key to good thin string splatters is semi-gloss paint, it seems to have just the right viscosity.  My sewing is improving so hopefully the next one will be even better.

Thanks for the tip. This is definately going in my list of things to do
