How to make a Texture Art piece with Dry Wall Spackle:
I already had a small container of light weight spackle from when I was patching holes in my office walls, but dry wall mud will work just as well.
Can you use Spackle on a canvas?
The answer to this question is YES! Spackle adds gorgeous texture to any canvas. My framed canvas had writing printed on it, so the first thing I did was add a layer of spackle over the wording. I almost stopped at this step because I loved the layers it created along with all the other white space.
However, I decided to add more pattern to my art piece in the end. I went with a loose zig zag pattern look. I tried to not overthink the pattern too much.
Some lines were shorter and some lines were longer. It’s a subtle look, but I could not believe how fun this was to make! It felt reminiscent of playing with… playdough or even finger painting as a child.
After my spackle had dried, it was time to give the frame a more modern look. I added Americana Decor Matte Metallic gold with a small paint brush.
The gold paint took my frame from a farmhouse vibe to modern! One coat of paint was all it took on the frame for a whole new feel.
Modern Art with Drywall Mud
I just love how this art piece came together basically using drywall mud and a putty knife. Creating and making art for our home is one of my favorite things! If you want some more DIY art ideas, check these out : Baking Soda + Paint Technique, Clay Ring Art or Ring Yarn Art.
I like pairing this minimalist spackle piece with my whimsical felted winky face art.
Textured Art with Spackle
I am so excited I finally gave textured art making a try. I wanted to make about 10 more immediately, but I ran out of spackle… I may have to run to the store for a larget supply soon!
Next up in my One Room Challenge space is a super secret and not entirely sure if I can do it project! I am planning on doing some weaving of sorts but with wood and on a simple white storage cabinet. This is a project you do not want to miss… coming soon!
It was nice to take just the smallest break this week and make something easy and pretty. I have two weeks in a row of fairly big projects to tackle… which has me feeling a little nervous. Here is all I still need to accomplish.
- TO DO LIST over the 8 weeks –
Paint Walls Hang Wallpaper
- Paint IKEA storage lockers
- DIY cabinet hack
- Install new ceiling fan (maybe)
DIY art above dresser
- Install Wood Slat accent wall
- Style room with
new rug, floor cushion, bean bag chair, desk + accessories
In the meantime, check out all the other rooms being transformed! Everybody will be posting progress each Thursday and linking up on the One Room Challenge blog right here! See you next week!
