You have to paint layer, upon layer of paint using a scraper, I used a Starbucks card, keep applying layers, taking a bit of here and there, etc. Once I'd got the backgrounds to my liking, I then cut a stencil out of paper and, on the top one, used my scraper to put on paint and gesso, on the bottom one, I just used gesso. Really enjoyed doing this, not finished, is anything ever, and will probably add to it next week.
