Textured Wall Art

Use design expert Nicole Gibbons’ step-by-step instructions to create a textured canvas.


5 col

Materials
(1) 30” x 40” canvas
Spackle
Satin latex paint (White and 1 color of your choice)
Paintbrush
Rubber gloves
Notched spackle spreader

Instructions

  1. Put on your rubber gloves and spread spackle across your canvas with your hands. The spackle should be evenly distributed around the canvas and be about 1/4-inch thick

  1. Use your notched spackle spreader to create even grooves across the canvas. Gently applying pressure, move from the top to the bottom until the whole canvas is grooved. Get creative with the design of your grooves — this will be the base of your design after the project is finished

  1. Allow your spackle to dry for 3-5 hours, or until it is hardened and dry to the touch. If you are in a warmer area it will dry faster
  2. Once that your spackle is dry, use white satin latex paint and paint the entire canvas. Make your brush strokes in the same direction as the grooves to ensure you get paint inside the grooves. Painting it white will make the canvas and the spackle look uniform and look like they were made of the same material

  1. Once your white paint has dried, use your paint color of choice to create a pattern or design that you like. Again, paint in the same direction as your grooves to ensure complete coverage

Tip: We decided to go for a minimalist design, and kept it simple with a single grey line across the middle of the canvas.

  1. Allow the paint to dry for 1 hour. Use a level and mark two points on the wall. Use a hammer and a 1-inch nail to put a nail in both of the marks. Let the nail stick out 1/4 of an inch. Hang the canvas wire on the nails
