Paste Paper - Metallic Examples

Copper metallic paint base with second coat of translucent red, purple paste on top.

Gold metallic paint base, various blues and purple paint paste on top.


I enjoy the look of metallic acrylic paint as a base coat. Be sure to let your base coat thoroughly dry before adding your paint and paste mixture and combing through. The top piece uses a medium comb, the middle piece uses a thick comb, and the bottom sheets are thin tiny combs.

These paste papers are beautiful Elizabeth. I did this a while back it is a lot of fun. I have never tried metallics, these are really luscious.

Glad you enjoyed my vacation photos!

Loved the paste papers you did. I think I never put down a pretty base coat first all those years ago when I did it. Makes a big difference. But looking at yours inspired me to do a fake version by just running the tools through the acrylics. What fun!Thanks for the inspiration.
