Posted 22nd Aug 2016

This #MakeItMonday we are bringing something a little different... 

We know how much a piece of art can cost so today we are bringing you a tutorial for this beautiful art deco style canvas and with only a few products needed to create, it costs next to nothing to make! 

 

You will need:

A blank stretched canvas
Black spray paint
Silver spray paint
Gold spray paint
Polyfilla 
Mini roller
Spoon
Roller tray

 

Directions: 

Step 1 -
Spray the entire canvas black and wait for it to dry. 

 

Step 2 - 
Once dry, add polyfilla to a bottom corner and create the 3D effect by twisting the back of a spoon into it. Leave to dry overnight.
