Peeled Paint Magazine Rack

You will need

magazine Rack - I got mine at Ikea
Acrylic paint - 2 colours
Torn Papers
Kitchen Roll

I painted my Rack with Gesso and left to dry

I then coated it with watered down acrylic in yellow and let dry

I stuck on pieces of torn paper

I put vaseline over some of the paper and here and there on the paint

I then painted a coat of green acrylic all over - allow to dry

I wiped off all the vaseline with kitchen roll - a bit messy but I like the finished result

This is the spine

And this is one I have done using yellow and brown acrylic and leaving out the torn paper stage.

They are both ready now to add embellishments of your choice

Thanks so much Hilda for this technique. So glad the technique zone is back up and running. It's a fantastic gift to us all on this forum and I so appreciate all that it teaches us and your and Sam's selflessness in providing it. x
