For this project I cut a heart out of a square piece of styrofoam. I paper mache’d it with newspaper and paper towel. Let this dry overnight. Once dry I covered the heart in Art Anthology Gesso.
I chose my colors. I didn’t choose traditional Valentine’s Day colors. I used Sorbet Dimensional Paints in Imperial, and Baby Blue Eyes, and Velvet Dimensional Paint in Limeaid
I painted the colors with the pattern I wanted starting with the Imperial, then the Baby Blue Eyes, then the Limeaid.
I used Art Anthology Gesso with my finger and applied to the edges of each color to soften the look. Use a white paint pen to outline the edges of the colors, Do the same with a fine line black pen.
Gesso letters, spray Colorations in Patience & Grape Soda until you get colors you want.
Use Dottie Stencil & Gesso to add dots to the O & E, use Big Dip O’ Ruby sorbet for L & V. Outline edges with black pen
I used the black pen to outline the circle pattern from the stencil and this really made the dots pop
I grabbed a roll of black & white checkered duct tape, tore a piece off & added around outer edge of the heart. Paint letters KRAZY in black & outline in white. Adhere LOVE and Krazy to top of heart…
hmm…still not quite funky enough for me…so I grabbed my black gel pen and decided to add black squares to the white lines I had added earlier…And yes…that is exactly what it needed.
