Getting Inky with Basswood Canvas – with Jennifer Priest 5

Hello and welcome to a FUN week with Walnut Hollow here on the Tombow USA Blog!

I received a fab assortment of Basswood Canvases and Wood Panels by Walnut Hollow, perfect for creating home decor. I created this canvas using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Tombow’s Grunge assortment of The Craft Collection Dual Brush Pens using the Basswood Canvas as a base. 

The wood surface is smooth an ready to alter. I adhered a couple of pieces of dictionary paper to the front of the Canvas using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue . Then I started painting the canvas.

 The hard wood surface made distressing, stamping, and painting this canvas a breeze! Traditional fabric canvases and give while altering, requiring a more gentle touch. 

I loved that I could get really grungy with this project, even taking sand paper to the edges and the front to distress it, impossible to do with traditional canvas. 

To create the shading on the hot air balloon, I outlined it with a Tombow Dual Brush Pen and then used my finger to spread the out, shading the edges of the balloon. Since the Pens are water-based, they blend really well. If the ink dries too quickly before blending, dip a paint brush into water to reactivate the ink and continue blending.
