Homemade Texture Paste Medium Recipe

Post by Archangel on Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:27 am


HOME MADE TEXTURE PASTE/MEDIUM!! By
It's a really easy recipe, quick to make and super inexpensive!  (Now I  have to admit I have no experience with store brand texture mediums so I  can't say how they compare but I thought this stuff worked nicely!)

It's a  really easy recipe, quick to make and super inexpensive!  (Now I have to  admit I have no experience with storebrand texture mediums so I can't  say how they compare but I thought this stuff worked nicely!)  



TEXTURE PASTE/MEDIUM RECIPE


1/2 cup Baking Soda


2 Tablespoons white school glue


1-2 Tablespoons White Acrylic Paint


(some water may be necessary)





Instructions:  I took an air tight  container and put in my baking soda.  I then added the glue, acrylic  paint and started mixing.  I used a couple of disposable chopsticks to  mix it up (we like take out sushi heehee) ....I just mixed to get a  smooth consistency, I added a few drops of water to get it to the  consistency I wanted.  There are many types of texture mediums in the  store, from light to heavy, so the amount of water you add will depend  on the heaviness of the texture you are looking for.  Done!


(The mixture keeps well in the air tight container....I made this layout  a few weeks ago and kept it on my craft shelf, I just checked it and  it's still perfectly usable....some of the moisture was floating on top,  I just gave it a stir and it was good to go!)





In my research I also saw some recipes that used talcum powder instead  of the baking soda, I haven't tried it with talcum powder but I bet it  would give a slightly smoother texture.  For my design below, the  slightly rougher texture was perfect for my brick design. 




So here again, me and my thrifty ways! LOL!  I find where I live, I find it hard to find masks, but I did have the Dusty Attic Brick Wall  chippies in my stash.  I throw next to nothing out.  I used the  negative space left from my brick chippies that I've used in past  projects and used it as a mask.  Just filled in with the paste.  Below  you can see the result when I lifted the 'mask' 




 I found that the medium chipped off a little here and there so what I  did was brushed a little Gesso over the design to bind it better. (I  think next time I make it I'll add a touch more glue).   I then rubbed a  few different chalk inks on the design (after it dried) to pick up the  texture more.
