3D Canvas Art












I love texture. It's a great way to enhance a plain picture.

For this project I used a plain white 8" x 11" canvas, 3D paint and a star fish.



































The colors are creamy off white, light blue and dark blue.










Here is where I first started the dots.

























I filled in the dots and left it blank were the starfish would be.
















The star fish was glued down with a hot glue gun.








Although I enjoyed this project, it took a bit longer than anticipated. I probably spent about 2 to 3 hours creating the dots.
















I continued the dots a bit over the edge of the canvas.








Close up the dots almost remind me of water droplets.

  1. I love this. I've been trying to figure out what to do with some canvas art in my dining room. 3D art has crossed my mind but I wasn't sure how it'd turn out. Now you've got me thinking again!

    I just started a new blog. I hope you'll stop by!

    Thanks!

  3. Love the texture. I just used a canvas for a piece to go over my powder bath door. I always thought you had to frame a canvas to display it.

  5. Wow! Love the details of this...It really looks professional, like something you'd buy at The Home Store...While star fish are not my thing...I'm sure I could fine something else to create something similar. Thanks for the idea...

    Also, I would like to personally invite you to our new Rockin’ link party every Friday at RoCa and Company. Come and show off what you got this coming Friday. Hope to see you there...

    Remember...YOU ROCK!!

  6. I love it! It looks great. And so peaceful.
    I used 3D paint a few years ago to decorate a T-shirt. I think I should try to do something again.

  14. Okay, so are you super experienced with puffy paints. I think the brand I have is not as "clean" and my dots won't look nearly as nice. Do you have a preferred brand?

  24. Love this! But what kind of paint is used? Puffy Paint? I can't read the picture well enough to see what brand/kind it is. Thanks for the idea!

  25. This is a wonderful idea. Most of the time I only heard of 2D projects put in the canvas. This is just so cool.
