Materials needed for prep: 16x20 canvas Spray bottle with water Covered surface and paper towels Large brush Colors needed for Prep..... Celery Green.....Plantation Pine...Antique Green....Soft Sage...Avocado Dip
Process: 1. Base coat canvas in Celery green and let dry completely. 2. "Drip" technique... This is done very quickly. Work wet and quickly, do not let the paint dry until you are pleased with the look. No two will look alike. A. Cover your work area with plastic. Be ready to soak up puddles with paper towels. B. Place a layer of newspaper and paper towels on the area that you will horizontally be setting your canvas...look at photos above C. Spray and brush a coat of water over the entire canvas. Not runny but all wet. D. Apply the Plantation Pine..Antique Green..Soft Sage and Avocado Dip paint in thick puddles across the top of the wet canvas. (Hazel prefers to have the darker colors towards the outside.) Check above first photo. Hold vertically and let it start to drip. E. To spread the colors, spray lightly with a bottle of water, letting the paint drip down the canvas. See second photo. Just enjoy the process. If the paint is thick you may have to move it a little with a brush. There are no mistakes. F. Make believe you are back in kindergarten and playing !!! Let it dry. A hair dryer may be used to speed up the drying process. G. Transfer on pattern. NOTE: Hazel handed out the pattern at the January meeting. If you did not get one she will have them before class for you to put on.
