I'm always looking for new things to paint on. Repurposed art is so cool to me because it gives new life to old, worn out objects.
Recently I have been working with wood. I am really enjoying this! I love the dimension and texture of the wood and I can be rough with it. Sometimes I just like to hit things with a hammer!
I treat the wood like any other surface. First sand the edges, next gesso it , then add my collage elements and paint, finish with a gel medium for protection, then I add the hanging hardware to the back. EASY!
One tip... if wood is damp at all, allow it to dry out for 48 hrs.
Think of all the possibilities!
