One of my favorite techniques is using stencils and modeling paste.
Robyn carries both in the store.
To bring out the detail of the stencil, after I painted it, I went around each edge with watered down brown/black acrylic paint. Smear it with your finger. The shadow adds a lot of dimension.
You'll find lots of stencils-large and small in Robyns shop. She has lots of choices on acrylic paint as well. And I can't live without the Liquitex gesso, matte gel medium and modeling paste!! They are a MUST have for me!!
Have a great Friday!
