First I textured the branches onto the canvas using Spackle. I like the color changing so I know it is dry for the next step. I used a palette knife.



Soon, it dries white and you have texture.



I chose a pale yellow for a background. It was more neutral and would focus more on the texture. Again, I wanted little contrast.

Dabbing


Blending


When that was dry, I highlighted the texture with three different shades of brown. I used the dry brush technique then wiped excess off with dry/damp rag. I also aged the backgound with the brown as well.



My nephew claimed it for his new room. My daughter wants one next.

I had started texturing canvases and thought that you could texture designs too. I am hoping I can workout the greenman. It needs to be thin though. Then I saw textured tree on etsy. Most use acrylic paint for texture instead of gesso, modeling putty, or spackle.

Oooh, I like this technique!!   What about glue and paper, would that make a good texturizing medium?

Sure, maybe in layers or crumpling the paper.
