Let's discuss: Tools around the home to create texture in a painting
Updated: Oct 23
Working in mixed media is so exciting and rewarding.
You can use items found around your home to add texture to an artwork.
Personally, I've used:-
. bamboo skewers - to draw thin lines
. soap detergent - to create a reaction with the paint
. straws - to blow alchol inks around yupo paper
. glad wrap - to form shapes and grooves
. tooth brush - to splatter paint
. sponge - to create smudges and peaks
. cotton buds- to form dots
. salt - to form grainy circles
My favourite way to create texture is using glad wrap.
