Hello There this is LuLu lancaster and I have a tip to use Creative PaperClay® as a painting medium.
I have bought the gels and dimensional paint for acrylics and thought what if I use my slurry of clay to create dimension without actually sculpting.
Here are the results. :)
Use a regular gesso primed canvas and a cup of Creative PaperClay® that you have turned into a slurry.
Create your slurry by adding water to a bit of clay until it becomes the consistency of thick pudding. Keep adding clay and water until you get the right thickness that will work for you.
I like to use high flow acrylics for this type of painting. I start by adding the clay slurry to the canvas.
with my paint brush and drip the high flow acrylic onto the slurry.
I can then swish around my paint brush and get high areas of paint and clay.
I keep adding more slurry and paint and swish it around with my paintbrush.
The more slurry you add the more dimension your canvas will have.
I created trees with the slurry using this same method mod adding slurry and then dropping the acrylic onto the canvas swishing with my brush.
Here I took a wire and dragged it through the trees to expose the colors underneath.
Now it was time for soothing silly! I added a slurry of a teddy bear.
and swish it around :)
Here he has a Creative PaperClay® unicorn horn at my granddaughters request :)
Thank you of following along and i hope you have enjoyed this tip for using Creative PaperClay® as a paint medium :)
