Introduction: HotGlue/Aluminum Art
We wanted to show you how we do our artwork.
Runner Up in the
Glue Challenge 2016
Step 1: What You Need:
These are some of the things you will need to this project.
Canvas (you can also use CardStock or anything else you might have that will suit your needs)
Hot Glue gun
Step 2: Transfering Design
This step is pretty straight forward, transfer your design to your preferred background
Step 3: Gluing Time
Now hot glue the design, we outlined everything and filled in the three, birds and stones.
Step 4: Covering Time
Now cover your work with aluminium tape. Wrinkle the tape for structure.
Step 5: Stompf
Use a stompf, or anything else with a soft tip that will not tear the tape, to flatten the tape so that the design get visible again.
Step 6: Base Coat
We used black acrylic paint and a sponge to get a base coat on the artwork.
Step 7: Painting Time.
Now it's time for some colour, use any colours you like, to get the "fire" look on the fire we used a very light mixing technique with yellow, orange and red.
Let it all dry, cover it with a thin layer of spray varnish to protect the artwork, hang it on the wall and admire your work!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
