Hey guys! Michelle here! I’m excited to show you a fun way to use your Haute Mess Molding Paste in a great on trend home decor art project today!
For this project you will need a small canvas, Haute Mess Molding Paste, Haute Mess Glass Bead Gel, Haute Mess Matte Gel, Haute Mess Acrylic paints in your color choice (I used Drop Dead Gorgeous and Make it Rain), a hot glue gun, a pallet knife and coarse glitter. You may also want to have a heat gun or blow dryer to speed up drying times.
I started by applying my Molding Paste with with the pallet knife to the canvas, making sure to leave lots of texture but thin enough that it won’t take forever to dry. (use a heat gun or hair dryer to speed up drying if needed)
Next I began applying the acrylic paints. I stared in the center with the darker color (Make it Rain) and blended the lighter color (Drop Dead Gorgeous) with water while both paints were still wet. I feathered the paints at the top and bottom as well and kind of gave the paint a watered wash over the top and bottom of the canvas, leaving the saturation of color more towards the center. Again I set a side to dry (or you can speed up the drying with a drying tool).
When dryer completely I stacked and applied the sea glass, securing it to the canvas with hot glue.
Finally I added the finishing touches by giving it more texture with the Haute Mess Glass Bead gel first and then later adding some Matte Gel to some of the cracks to nestle some coarse glitter in for extra sparkle. I also added a slight rub of some metallic rose gold paint for some shine as well.
I love how this make such an impact like a high end piece of art and how you could easily mix it up with all sorts of other options and combinations! I know you will have a blast playing around with these techniques!
