Okay, now for the HOMEMADE TEXTURE PASTE/MEDIUM!! It's a really easy recipe, quick to make and super inexpensive
TEXTURE PASTE/MEDIUM RECIPE
1/2 cup Baking Soda
2 Tablespoons white school glue
1-2 Tablespoons White Acrylic Paint
(some water may be necessary)
Instructions: I took an airtight container and put in the baking soda. I then added the glue, acrylic paint, and started mixing. I used a couple of disposable sticks to mix it up... I just mixed to get a smooth consistency, I added a few drops of water to get it to the consistency I wanted. There are many types of texture mediums in the store, from light to heavy, so the amount of water you add will depend on the heaviness of the texture you are looking for. Done!
(The mixture keeps well in the airtight container...I made this layout a few weeks ago and kept it on my craft shelf, I just checked it and it's still perfectly usable....some of the moisture was floating on top, I just gave it a stir and it was good to go!)
In my research I also saw some recipes that used talcum powder instead of the baking soda, I haven't tried it with talcum powder but I bet it would give a slightly smoother texture. For my design below, the slightly rougher texture was perfect for my brick design.
