Texture Technique – More Ways To Use Sludge

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!!!!
