Steampunk Canvas – MotorCross by Lynn Good

by Lynn Good

Today I would like to share with you a canvas that I have created for this months “Steampunk” theme.

Motorbike riding was a big part of my boys lives – the both competed here in Tasmania and many hours were spent preparing, practising and racing.  This canvas is in memory of that.

I began by setting out my composition

Once I was happy with the basic layout I took a photo of it to refer back to later as they never seem to go back the way we first plan!!

I have then painted the canvas and all the chipboard pieces with black gesso.

Once dry I have used gloss medium and a stencil to create some background effects.

You can heat dry this or wait patiently! (it is all clear when dry)

I have used Finnabair matte medium to adhere all the chipboard pieces to the canvas.  I have added some fillers – beads, buttons, bits of metal etc.

Once all dry the fun begins with the colours – just keep adding til you are happy!
