Creating Art Textures for Painting & Design : Art Textures: Adding Texture to Paper


Sometimes you want to work with a surface
that’s already textured. And if you don’t want to buy something like papyrus paper,
which obviously has a lot of texture, or you don’t like this very linear texture then you
can add texture right on to your surface. Now, you can’t do this with just paper it
has to be some sort of a board it has to be a little bit heavier than paper, and a good
sort of adhesive to use would be something like a matte medium. It dries clear, it says
matte, so it’s going to dry matte, they also have gloss medium and it’s a clear acrylic
and it works essentially as a glue. So you put this over your surface and you have to
work quite quickly and you’re sort of glopping it on, there’s, there’s no need to be fancy
here. And I’m going to use tissue paper, you can use anything else, you can use rice paper,
you could put on some sort of patterned fabric if you wanted. And just make sure that your
paper has rough edges, has broken edges, because you don’t really want sharp edges necessarily.
And you sort of smush it down there, and if you’re worried about it staying, you might
add a little bit more matte medium on top to just make sure that it, it stays down and
you can work out any air bubbles that you end up with. And you can smush this around
if you don’t happen to, if you think that’s too strong, you want to sort of, you get in
there with your hands and kind of play with it. And once this is dry, it will dry white
and then you can go over it and see what happens with it as a textural surface. So you have
very quickly and very quickly created a textural surface that you then can play with.
