I had these wooden canvases on hand for resin painting, but since it’s such nice wood I thought it might be neat to create a plaque using my resin heart.
As an added twist and to mimic a bit of a shallow shadow box I turned it around and used the back! I used acrylic paint to coat the wood – a pearlescent white and a satin black.
For the middle of the wooden/sunken part of the wooden canvas, I will be gluing down some art paper. For this part, measure, measure, measure! I use a paper trimmer because otherwise my cuts are notoriously crooked. Make sure you work out any air bubbles in the paper by pressing down firmly.
Time to make some holes so I can add eye-hooks to be able to put my plaque on the wall. Since these have a rustic look, I will use twine. For the holes I used an 1/16 drill bit and eye-hooks that fit.
Here they are! Ready for Valentine’s Day and I’ll probably leave them on the wall year-round!
