HMMM I had also seen this blog post by Villabarnes. She told how she uses Gesso to make things look “old world” Well the stars just aliened for me and I gave it a try.
I painted them a grey that I had on hand. Let that dry.
Then went at it with my Gesso in white. Just painted right over the grey then wiped it right off I used cheese cloth you could use T-shirts.
TA DA!! They may have been too shiny because some of the grey paint came off as well when I went to wipe off the Gesso. I think it looks okay though with the red and green peeking through.
Not too bad for a first try…
More to come on this technique..
