Textured and Natural-
two elements that make earthy art.
If you're like me,
you are looking forward to spring.
You can paint one of these feathers
and really hang it year round.
Start by cutting a 20" x 48" utility panel
and 4 frame boards that fit your piece.
I stained the wood frame with Early American.
Using card stock,
drag a semi-gloss white across the boards
in random geometric patterns.
I think it gives it a tribal feel.
If you get paint anywhere that you don't want it,
just use nail polish remover.
After painting the base color white,
I loosely sketched a large feather outline.
With a piece of cardstock on it's edge,
pull a center line in gray.
Then, using a folded piece of cardstock,
I dip half into gray and half into white
and pull across the board
from the center to the outer edge of sketch.
Use a fine line brush to add white line details.
You can repeat cardstock scraping
until you have the look you want.
It's random and rustic.
Happy Painting Friends!
