But the team at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge have a fun challenge for our creative folks. This monthl our challenge is to use modeling paste (molding paste) along with stencils. How fun is that. Modeling paste (Golden Paints call their brand molding paste) is so fun to use. If you aren't familiar, it's a thick creamy substance that creates a textured ground for painting, collage or sculpture. It dried opaque white, stiff and hard. What's extra cool about it is that you can add your paint with it and make it any color you want!
In my challenge, I used a paper collage background and let it dry. I wasn't sure what I was going to do as far as the image, but I left for a week on the beach. When I came back, I was still in coastal living mode, that I added Bahama Blue to the modeling paste and randomly used some stencils. I used a palette knife to spread it out. I don't cover every single inch with the paste while using the stencil. I like the mystery of unfound edges in my application.
