Flowy Background Video Tutorial by Dina Wakley

May 22nd, 2015

Flowy Background by Dina Wakley | www.rangerink.comRanger Signature Artist Dina Wakley techniques using her Dina Wakley Media products to create a flowy background.  Dina shares about using gesso, creating brushstroke textures, and even how to get that last bit of paint out of the tube.

“One of the many things I love about my Dina Wakley Media heavy body acrylic paint is how versatile it is. Its heavy body will hold a brushstroke, so you can get texture and impasto. Add a little water and you can get a flowy, watercolor look. It’s the best of both worlds!
Last week I was creating watery backgrounds in my journal, and I thought you’d like to see the process. I grabbed the camera and filmed this little video. I hope you enjoy it and try the technique.”
Dina

As promised, here are some closer looks at the flowy background Dina created in the video!
