Texture Technique – Sludge as paint
The next thing I did with sludge is use it as paint. I was preparing a painting for my man’s birthday and wasn’t using any papers or anything of the sort. So, I knew it needed some kind of texture and Sludge instantly popped into my head.
I used it for one of the stripes, otherwise it would been too flat for my liking.
Figured this was the closest thing to a deer head he would get into the house (not a huge fan of animal carcasses).
Sludge with stencil
For the last piece I used one of my awesome old school plastic doilies as a stencil. I saw Christy Tomlinson use one in a tutorial and I just had to get my hands on one. I just set the doily down on the painting and applied quite a bit of Sludge to the top of it, making sure I got into every crack and crevice.
When I carefully lifted it I was totally happy with the chunky remnants it left. So, I had to do it again, haha.
The finished piece entitled “Home Tweet Home“. Isn’t that doily image SO darn cute!!!!
