Today I have been experimenting with different modelling pastes on their own and mixed with an acrylic colour one way of adding a texture to my paintings. I am colouring the paste to give a ground colour to then paint over with oil paint.
I have made a few sample canvases.
I applied Lascaux Structura and acrylic yellow ochre at the top and Natural Lascaux modelling paste C and acrylic yellow ochre on the bottom with a palette knife. Leave to dry overnight and I will apply another coat tomorrow. The structura is less coarse than the natural modelling paste. It was easy to apply over the burlap. Leaving part of the burlap is interesting.
Galeria heavy structure gel-very smooth easy to apply and dries clear.
Lascaux Structura-light-creamy-easy to colour-dries white and when coloured dries dark.
Natural Lascaux modelling paste A-very thick-added with acrylic medium becomes a creamy consistency.
Natural Lascaux modelling paste B-coarse gritty and easy to apply.
Natural Lascaux modelling paste C-very coarse and gritty.
