How artist Purple Faye made the ‘Daffodil’ 3D acrylic painting

Here’s how I made my ‘Daffodil’ 3D acrylic painting.

I started by drawing out the design onto a piece of cardboard I’d cut from a box, making sure it was the same size as the canvas I was going to use so the design would fit on the canvas.

I then cut the design out and used some of the offcuts to make extra layers for the flower head. These were then stuck down onto the cavas and left to dry.

Next I covered the cardboard with the modroc (plaster of paris bandages) and left it to dry again. Once the modroc was dry I used acrylic paints on top.

I started by making it a yellow daffodil but I felt that the white and orange would look better , I then decided to use two colours in the background to make the daffodil appear to pop out of the canvas even more.

The finished piece is available to buy from my etsy shop here.

Making of the ‘Robin’ 3D acrylic painting by artist Purple Faye

In October I showed how I made the Halloween inspired 3D acrylic painting ‘Raven’, as I was making that one I also made this companion piece which was inspired by Christmas,  ‘Robin’. Both the birds use the same blue background on the same size canvas, 12×12 inches square, so they sit side by side nicely.

You can see how I made the ‘Raven’ in the blog post I wrote about it here.

They are both available to buy from my online shop here (Raven) and here (Robin)

Here’s how I made the Robin:

I started by drawing out the design onto the piece of cardboard that I had already cut to the size of the canvas I was going to use, 12×12 inches square. I then cut it out and used more cardboard to create the layers. After sticking all the cardboard pieces together and sticking it onto the blank canvas I then put the modroc (plaster of Paris bandages) on top, scoring lines in to create texture where necessary. Once the modroc was dry I then painted it with acrylic paints. Starting with a mid grey for the base coat and then adding in the shading and details.

Making of the Christmas Decorations 3D acrylic Paintings by artist Purple Faye

Here’s how I made my Christmas Decorations 3D acrylic paintings.

I started by roughly drawing out the designs then cut them out. As they are so small, 3×3 inches square, each one only uses one layer of cardboard, I then used modroc on top to create the textures. Once they were dry I painted them with acrylic paints.
