Handpainted Patches with Cristin


Oh hello! For today’s project I’m using pieces of canvas drop cloth and Haute Mess Gesso to create patches!


You can use any gesso to prep the surface. I ended up using more than one layer (with drying in between) before the canvas dropcloth was ready for more layers.

Next I’m using Haute Mess paints to add details and color!! You can get super creative here!


Once the patches are dry you can seal it with a varnish and then sew it onto purses, bags, jackets and more!
