Artsy Textured Canvas with Fast Mâché
By Audrey Lozano
Have fun creating a unique piece of art for your wall! ACTÍVA’s Fast Mâché is a fast drying paper mache. It has a unique formula, which allows the paper mache to dry more quickly than typical paper mache products. It is 100% safe and non-toxic, and is made from virgin recycled paper. Summer is coming and we got inspired by the ocean, but you can transform this idea into any other design that you want, trust us, your piece it’s gonna look wonderful.
Fast Mache can be mixed in any plastic container, we recommend always doing it in a ventilated room, or for easier preparation, use a Ziploc plastic bag, Visit: www.activaproducts.com for more information.
In a Ziploc plastic bag mix 6 cups of papier-mache per 2 cups of warm water
Work together with hands until the ingredients are generally combined
Place papier-mache in 4 different plastic containers (one for each color) and mix each one with acrylic paint and a few drops of water, until the ingredients are well blended and the papier-mache reaches a smooth consistency
Use the pencil for drawing a line on the canvas, this will mark the division between the sky and the ocean
Use the Activ-Tool as a spatula and start spreading the papier-mache mixture in color white on the top part of the canvas
Repeat step 5 and use the blue mixtures for creating the appearance of ocean waves in the bottom part of the canvas
When your painting is ready, let it set for 24 hours -when it's fully dried you can add some extra details, for example clouds and a couple of seagulls!
