Create a cut, layered, textured, stacked one-of-a-kind jaw-dropping cool piece!
Day One – Design your canvas and make your cuts. Paint the first layer (white) on your canvas which will keep the edges from rolling. Apply pastes and textures.
Day Two – Finish texturing, paint, detail, tweak, varnish, assemble!
