Jo Sonja's Texture Paste: A white paste used for exaggerated structure and texture, to create 3-D effects. Dries to a very hard matte finish and may be either overpainted or mixed with Jo Sonja's Artists' Colours before application to produce a coloured, textured ground. Great for stencilling techniques and to adhere materials for mosaic and collage projects.
Open grained wood such as oak may be filled using a mixture of Texture Paste and desired colour mixed 1:1. Apply this mix with a spatula and carefully remove any excess as you proceed across the surface. Let dry, then sand to a desired smoothness. Proceed to glaze with desired colour.
- Apply with a rubber spatula, palette knife, coarse brush or graining tool for textured background effects.
- Mix with paints to produce coloured grounds.
- Paintable as soon as dry. (At least 24 hours).
- Antiquing will emphasise textural effects.
May be applied with a palette knife through a thick plastic stencil to create 3-D effects. A cake decorating bag with tips can also be used for dimensional effects.
Useful to imbed objects such as shells, buttons and broken glass for mosaics, picture frames, walls, etc.
