I had the pleasure of meeting up with some local artist at Christ Church on League Line Road, March 9 and 10 . There the group hostess Sandy and Brenda instructed everyone on a technique using Joint Compound on canvas board and the use of paper dots, the punched out portion when using a hole punch.
The joint compound, also called sheet rock mud and sometimes spackle, was laid on to form tree trunks. Once the compound was completely dry, black / dark brown, acrylic paint was added to create a birch looking tree. I’m fairly happy with how my piece came out and was very glad I had a frame that set it off well.
peace love & harmony in all that you do,
