It's been a little while since I've created a steampunk project. Today i'm sharing my Happy Steampunk Canvas I created with a circle wooden frame, fabric and some chipboard. I also added a few metal pieces to complete the steampunk look. The process of creating the texture on the canvas is the interesting part that i want to share with you.
Happy Steampunk Canvas
First i sealed the fabric with layer of gesso. Then I added a layer of texture with modeling paste and stencil.
The next step was to spray the canvas to add a little color. Then I arranged all the chipboard pieces on the canvas. Once I knew where I wanted them to be I took a photo with my phone so I will not forget how I arranged them. Finally I painted all the pieces with black acrylic paint.
When the pieces were dry I glued them on the canvas. Now come the fun part of adding the texture and metal pieces and paint everything. For texture I added different size plastic balls and a bandage. I also added some strings. Then I sprayed the canvas with a few layers of sprays making sure to dry each layer. Then I added metal acrylic paint to better cover the embellishments and to create more shadows and accents. Finally I added Inka Gold to highlight the letters and make them pop.
I also painted two chipboard pieces and added some shimmer to them. These pieces were hanged with a string from the bottom cogwheels. A really nice addition to a canvas you hang on the wall.
