#1. Purchase a canvas and some while school glue (Elmer’s for example).
#2. Decide on what image you want to draw on your canvas. I recommend searching for silhouette clip art of whatever image you want to put on your canvas to give you ideas. Simpler outlines work best. Skip this step if you want to do a free-form or abstract shape.
#3. With a pencil, draw your design onto the canvas. Skip this step is you are doing a free-form.
#4. Trace over your pencil lines with white school glue. (See picture for this step)
#5. Let the glue dry for 24 hours. This is crucial if you plan to add color. If you want to leave it all while (and you can’t see your pencil marks) you are finished.
TIP: If your glue dries and is not as “dimensional” as you would like, just trace over your lines with glue with a second (or third!) layer. This is also a great way to add various layers of dimension to your work of art.
