Splat by Amanda Southern


Hi everyone

I would like to share with you this Tuesday one of the samples that I made for last Thursdays, That’s Crafty!, shows on Hochanda TV on which That’s Crafty! launched some new fabulous designs in both acrylic and MDF shapes for you to alter and decorate. If you missed the shows you can still catch them HERE, show times were 5pm & 9pm just click watch the show to watch these shows.

I have used the fabulous, and my new found favourite, acrylic Splat and stand.

Here’s What I Did:-

The first thing is to remove the white protective cover that protects the acrylic. 

I first stencilled black texture paste through the Donna Downey stencil and allowed that to dry fully overnight. On the reverse of the acrylic I then stencilled Dina Wakley paints through one of Tim Holtz stencils, I used Cut & Dry Foam to apply the paint. To ensure that I got a really sharp stencil I taped the stencil down and built the layers of paint up slowly allowing each layer to dry fully before adding the next colour so that moving the stencil into a different position didn’t smudge the previous stencilling. So much so I built these up over a couple of evenings. I also added some stencilling to the base. 

I finish off by adding the same colour paints to an old paintbrush and added it to the stand. The fact that I have added to the front and the back of the splat the piece is given some depth.

What I Used:-

That’s Crafty! Surfaces Acrylic Splat Upright from either a pack of 3 or the Mixed Acrylic Pack of 3 Uprights
Black Texture Paste or any other texture paste
Dina Wakley Acrylic Paints – asstd colours
Old Paint Brush

Hope you like it and I’ll see you next Tuesday
