Get crazy wit' the cheese whiz...or Glue...

I recently saw a textured painting tutorial online, and because of my absentmindedness I can't recall where. (Trust me I looked through my history & couldn't track it down.) But it reminded me of a textured painting I did myself & I left hidden in the garage somewhere to be forever forgotten.
The tutorial used some kinda tempura mixture to make the surface "bumpy." Here is my version.




  1. Step 1 1

    You can salvage an old used canvas if you want. I actually started off with a blank one.
    I used craft glue (it's thicker) & drizzled it all over my canvas.
    Depending on how crazy you get with the glue, you may need to wait 1 -3 days for the craft glue to completely dry.

  2. Step 2 2

    then paint!

    This was the horrible mess I made & hid in the garage for a bit...

  3. Step 3 3

    Now this is where the other "tempura" project inspired me... I changed the colors...

    I used some light blues & greens...

  4. Step 4 4


    Now, I just need to figure out where I'm going to hang it up...

    This took me less than 20 minutes only because I had the clue done already... Most likely this can be completed in one weekend. I'm thinking about making more in various single colors & selling them as a set... We'll see.

    Thanks for looking!
