Recipe for Texture Paste.....



Let me just say right up front, this is not my recipe but I'm willing to share with everyone.  I found a bunch of recipes online and it is just close your eyes and pick one.  I have to say the reason I picked this recipe is because this lady did a video tutorial on the different recipes.   (luvleescrappin  on YouTube) This is her blog address http://luvleescrappin.blogspot.ca and I have to say I have spent hours checking out her blog posts and her video's on YouTube. Such a talent and I'm so taken with her designs!  So when it came right down to it, it is just a matter of taste. Did I like the smell of baby powder?  If not then use baking soda...  Well I love baby powder so I chose this recipe.

1 1/4 C Baby Powder
1/2 C Gesso or White Paint  ( I used Gesso)
1/4 C ModPodge

Mix it all together and store in a jar with good tight lid.  I put a piece of seran wrap over the top and then put on the lid.  If your recipe feels a little too thin just add a little bit more of baby powder until it reaches the consistency  you want it to be.  If it is too tight just add more gesso.    You can also add a little sand to the recipe if you want to have that type of texture. Once you have your recipe...the possibilities are endless!  So jump in and explore your messy side!

There you have it.  Pretty cut and dried I think but a great savings for sure.  This is what I use for my mixed media pieces and I do love it.  It seems to perform well and it dries pretty fast. I honestly cannot tell a difference or at least not enough difference for the price difference. Modeling paste can get pretty expensive in these parts!

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Glenda, I'll have to try this if I ever get a chance to be creative again. Summer, enjoyed 2 wks of perfect weather outdoors, now 1 week of storms and had a lot to catch upon. So want to paint my kitchen cabinets, but just too humid. Off to catch up on WOYWW and visit the site you found. THANKS, have a great weekend.

AWESOME!! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I need to go purchase some baby powder but that's okay ... it smells SO GOOD and since the grandkids are 16 & 22 I haven't had the chance to smell it in a LONG time! Thanks for sharing ...

Modeling paste is VERY pricey! I've made my own concoction using lightweight spackling (from the hardware store) mixed with matte medium and it was okay. But after buying and using the good stuff, I found it superior and worth the price. Jennifer McGuire has a good video that demonstrates various pastes and she talks about picking up any excess and scraping it back into the jar (worth a peak).

This looks a good recipe, Glenda. If you didn't like the smell of baby powder you could always use Simple talc (it has no perfume). I use Polyfilla One Fill (I think it's called joint compound in the USA) for moulding paste and that works very well. It's very cheap, goes a long way, and has a fine, light texture. It takes impressions well if you let it dry to a slight skin, too.

And then to say thank you very much for your information and that it's too bad we could not find a recipe for Gesso. :) lol

Now I feel really stupid because I did not know the difference between texture paint and gEsse. I guess they are the same. I'm not familiar too much with it so I guess now I know.
