Wohoo- finally I can share. I am so so stoked that Liquitex included some of my art work on four of their new Michaels Acrylic Painting Sets. I am sure some of you might recognize quite a couple familiar images :)

As you know I am a huge fan of the Liquitex Products and use them for a couple years now because I really love how the products emphasize my artwork and because they are innovative and fun and make me create out of the box! So thank you Liquitex for asking me for some artwork :)

I have not seen the finished sets in the stores yet myself as I have no car and Michaels store in walking distance but my friend Meike from Texas sent me those pictures- so much fun!

They all contain the yummy Liquitex acrylic media needed to do the techniques themed on the box as well as a technique sheet inside.

They are so much fun to work with – if you use them I hope you will share some pictures- but in any event shoot me a picture if you found them in your area – I would love to see :)

Thank you for letting me share my giddy news and for your support !

Have an AMAZING day!

Watertower Canvas or The Yea or Nay Question

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Mixed Media

This is my latest canvas which is a 24×20″ one.

It is pretty textured as I layered Cheesecloth, Bark and Canvas cloth onto the painted background. I worked with Liquitex Acrylic Inks and Paints on the Background

Then used some Liquitex Professional Spray Paints

and lastly painted and touched everything up using Winsor & Newton Oilbars. (I just bought them and gosh do I love them!)

I will show this canvas among others in my Gentrification series today at an art show done by artists of and for residents of Dixon Mills here in Jersey City.

I am excited and nervous to show my work- it will be a small show but still :) My motto today is “The master failed more times then you have even tried” …so here you go, I am putting myself out there and it will be fine :) I am excited to see what people think of it- I am not planning or expecting on selling the work yet but it is the start of whole series with  lot more paintings on the Gentrification topic that I have in mind .  My dream would be a big exhibition on this topic- one can dream, right? But, since a couple of you emailed me and asked if I would sell the one or the other canvas, I was thinking of doing prints of them though- what do you think? Yea or Nay?

Have a wonderful day !

Abstract Mini Canvases

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Acrylicpaints, Altered Art, Mixed Media

I am on my way to NAMTA Art Materials World in Pittsburgh today. Stampendous! will have a booth there too and these are some mini canvases I created using my Stampendous! Signature stamps.

Basically I created a background for each canvas with different color combinations using Acrylic Inks or Soft Body Acrylic Paint – having some fun dripping and dropping

Using the templates that are included in my stamp packages with Soft Body and/or Heavy Body Acrylic Paints I added another layer.

For the third layer I used the Stamps with an Embossing Pad and added various Aged Embossing Powders on top of it.

Carefully heat embossed it as to not burn canvas and/or acrylic paints

I love the texture this creates

I then used the stamps with acrylic paints and added some colors here and there and tied some elements together

I had loads of fun with those canvases

Here are all the supplies I used:
