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.

Make your own using one of my kits available to buy here:

How artist Purple Faye made the large square ‘Unicorn’ 3D acrylic painting using a Purple Faye ‘Make Your Own Unicorn 3D Picture Kit’.

I wanted to have a finished ‘Unicorn’ 3D acrylic painting to show people who are interested in my kits, when I do craft fairs etc, so I thought it would be helpful to make it using one of the kits I’d made so i can show you how I do it.

If you’ve bought a kit from me to make your own square unicorn 3D picture then hopefully you should find this useful if you get stuck when making yours.

If you don’t have one of my kits yet but you’d like one then you can buy them from my etsy shop or message me/ email info@purplefaye.co.uk

 

 

I used the template to get the shape and followed my instructions of which bits to cut out to make it 3D. Once all my cardboard layers were stuck together on the canvas I then covered it in modroc, adding texture as per my instructions. I then used acrylic paints, mixing my own pastel colours to get the shades that I wanted, to paint it once the modroc was completely dry.

This video shows how I put the modroc on:

This video show’s how I used acrylic paints to paint it.

Purple Faye Art Adventure: The Hepworth Wakefield Spring Market 2017

Last Saturday (8th April) I went to the Spring Market at The Hepworth Wakefield.

Held in The Calder, this was the first year of it taking place as part of their Easter program of events. “featuring specially selected food produce, textiles, homewares, ceramics, cosmetics, jewellery, stationery and more, sourced and produced by regionally-based artists, makers, designers and bakers.”

The street market was also there serving a range of cuisines, cakes, coffee and local ales along with live music from local musicians.

As it was a lovely sunny day a lot of people were enjoying the street market sat on the grass.

I thought it was a good idea for The Hepworth to hold a Spring Market in The Calder but I think they could have done with more stalls or to let the ones that were there spread out a bit. When I walked in it only seemed to be half full with all the stalls squished together at one end, which was a bit disappointing. The stalls that were there had some lovely things though, and it was nice to see Ali Appleby (studio holder at The Art House) for a quick catchup and a look at her latest beautiful printed wares. I even treated my boyfriend to some award winning, it won the bronze award in the Louisiana ultra hot category in 2015, really hot sauce from The Unusual Chutney Company which he said was nice but not as hot as he thought it was going to be. (He was at work when I went so wasn’t able to come along with me)

I look forward to seeing what other fairs/markets/events The Hepworth puts on in The Calder this year, I may even apply to take part in some too.
