Welcome This video is for a frame of 30X40cm and an A4 canvas. Let’s open the box to recover the mat. And we will take the texture paste. With the spatula, spread the paste over the mat. A thin layer is enough We can recover the surplus. the way to put it does not matter Here we have the lace template. It is flexible and is one meter long. One side is flat and the other side with the reliefs. I will put oil on the lace so that the paste not glue You can use any oil I used cooking oil, it’s edible and it does not hurt. I put the lace of the side in relief on the paste. Now using the spatula, we will scrape And the surplus you can put it back on its knob. repeat the step on 4 sides. If you are not satisfied with the footprint. You can do it again while the paste is still fresh. As here, I start again by pressing more. Thanks to the oil, the dough did not stick. You can rinse it. and here is the result Now we will take a flat canvas of A4 size. And the thin leaf with the poppy pattern. Where we also have the lace pattern. I’m going to take the “liant” to paste it. First I spread the “liant” over the entire canvas. I take the sheet and begin delicately to paste. I use the brush to flatten and better eliminate leaf wrinkles. Optional: The mat is clear, it would have been better if you had painted the edges in dark green before gluing the
sheet Now it’s up to you if you opt for the dark edges. Now I take a cloth to press the sheet better against the canvas so that it adopts the shapes of the canvas. dry To avoid the edges of the sheet. take a sheet of sandpaper 180 and sand I smooth the drawing smoothly to see the fabric of the canvas. and I sand the edges of the mat Now I take the citation template # 4 And in the center I’m going to put some textural paste. I will dry it to add a second layer of paste in the template and accentuate the relief. Put everything together And here is the result. Optional: I paint with iridescent patina the mat I hope you appreciated it and see you soon.
