Robotics 2 // Out of this world and a Tutorial

Hello Everyone!
I'm sharing today a very simple technique for creating backgrounds using acrylic paints and plastic wrap tissue paper. Many crafters use this technique, but I am sharing how I do it, and hope that you will try it.
Tissue paper
Gel Medium
Mini canvas
Acrylic paints: Bronze
Painting Brush
  • Give a base coat of bronze acrylic paint to mini canvas.
  • Tear white tissue paper and crumple.
  • Open gently, you don't want to loss all the fabulous folds.
  • Cover the canvas with gel medium.
  • Add the paper, careful to maintain the folds.
  • Seal the paper with gel medium, be gentle with the brush, we don't want to tear the paper.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Paint this complete surface with bronze acrylic paint.
  • Color the raised surface with a turquoise Gelatos.
  • Add a little turquoise paint, I like to use my fingers, feel that I have more control of the amount of paint added.
  • Allow to dry.
  • Adhere your colored image and Sentiment with gel medium.
  • Add your decorations.
Here is the final project:
