Technique Tuesday - Faux Peeled Paint Technique

Hi, Everyone,

It's Technique Tuesday and today we are going to learn how to create Faux Peeled Paint which you can use on your Layouts, Cards, Art Journal pages, or Altered Art.  This is an easy technique and looks absolutely beautiful as the starting point for any of your projects.
Let's begin . . .
Creating Faux Peeled Paint in this technique is a 3 step process.
To begin, I like to apply pattern paper to my background and create my Faux Peeled Paint around the pattern paper.

Step 1 - Apply Basic Acrylic Paint around the edges of the patterned paper.  Here my paint is approximately 2" wide.

Dry the paint with a heat tool.

Step 2 - Apply Vaseline with your finger in random lines where you want the paint to "peel".   Using Vaseline allows us to apply a smaller amount of crackle paint to achieve a "peeling" of paint rather than just a crackle.

Step 3 - Apply Ranger Crackle Paint with a paint brush very gently floating over the Vaseline (being careful not to move the Vaseline). 

Dry the paint with a heat tool.  The Vaseline will flow within the area you have applied it on, so the paint applied on top will pull apart in large sections and look like Peeled Paint.

Above is a project created using this Faux Peeled Paint technique.  This will be a Mixed Media Class on Sunday, September 1, from 12-4 p.m.  Cost $40.
Hope to see you there. 

Treasured Memories carries the whole line of Basic Acrylic Paints and Ranger Crackle Paints so you have a vast assortment of colours to choose from to create this Faux Peeled Paint technique.

Have fun creating!
