Design project challenge and giveaway


Have you tried DECOART'S modeling paste yet?
If you haven't, you really must give it a try, you'll be so amazed at the texture it can create.

I made the picture frame using a plain unfinished frame found at my local craft store. I applied one coat of turquoise acrylic craft paint, and for the stencil I used a sheet of laser cut scrapbook paper. For this project I tinted the modeling paste with a little bit of green craft paint before applying it. It worked out great, just make sure if you try this not to thin down the paste too much. The paste needs to be thick enough so it doesn't leak underneath your stencil. I like to let it dry at least 24 hours. Once dry I sanded the edges and aged it by using a thinned down dark brown paint, wiping off any excess.

  1. I've never used this product, but I have used something called Wood Icing. Is the same concept?

    I can see this being a great product for larger stencils too, creating a kind a bas relief.

    I need to check this stuff out.
    Thanks for the info.
