While a small group of us crafted at Lynnes house we noticed a gorgeous canvas on her wall and admired it. She explained how she'd made it and asked if we'd like to make one on her next course, oh yes we would!
We started off by edging the canvas in brown acrylic paint, & the a line of white acrylic paint diagonally down the center where we wanted the "river" to flow. On top of the white we put lines of encaustic wax diagonally down the center in blues, white, grey and small amounts of brown & black.
These were then smudge slightly with the encaustic iron.
A bit of white polyfiller rubbed on with my finger down the "river" gave the image of froth & rapids. I also put glossy accents along this area & sprinkled fine glitter on to give it a shimmer. The glossy accents was also used so I could stick sand along the "river banks"
All done & now hanging in my lounge.
