Colouring and Bleaching Canvas

As my roll of canvas arrived yesterday, I decided to have another go at the bleaching effect with dishwasher rinse liquid.  This time I used a very thin layer of paint, this is London bus fresco paint and it's come out really well, but unfortunately the photo doesn't show it very well.

This one is yellow submarine and I poured the dishwasher rinse on in specific places.

Tango for this one and after pouring on the dishwasher rinse I  used screwed up tissue to create patterns in the liquid.

A very thin layer of beach hut fresco paint and it's come out really well, but again, photo doesn't do it justice.

Then the downfall, it doesn't like the opaque paint. Even though I really, really watered the guacamole down, adding the dishwasher rinse didn't do anything!!

So I tried it with limelight as I wanted a green, although it's come out more yellow than green!!!

I have an idea for what I want to use them for but I'm still waiting on post - watch this space!!!

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
