Introduction: HotGlue/Aluminum Art

About: I'm a survivalist, photographer, Drone Pilot and artist. I make things from a lot of different materials and love nature, animals and gardening.

We wanted to show you how we do our artwork.

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
Acrylic paint
Aluminium tape
Transfer paper
A Design


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!
