As a craft blogger, I’m always looking for ways to improve my photographs. When I started looking at backdrops for my pictures, I was surprised at the cost. Being a frugal crafter I, of course, decided I could do it myself! Here’s a technique you can use to make a photo backdrop for a photo booth or personal pictures.
DecoArt Texture Paste: Fine
Step one: place the stencil on the canvas. Spread the texture paste over the stencil. Lift the stencil.
Optional: if the backdrop will be handled extensively, you may want to seal it with a glaze or spray on finish.
I’m really happy with my textured backdrop! It almost looks like wallpaper. You may recognize it from some of my past posts, like this one or this one.
I’m eager to make another, but can’t decide on what color. I love red, but would that be too overpowering? I’m just drawn to bold colors!
Looks great!! I’m always in search of better backdrops, thanks for sharing
Brilliant Morena! I never would have thought to do that
i think i might use this on a wall with paint on top! TY for the idea!
What a great idea! I recently did something similar for my food shots – bought some cheap boards and sample paint and painted them for a backdrop! Works even better than having a fancy dining room table with beautiful wood because I can move them around 🙂
love this! i definitely need to do this. thank you! 🙂
