Create cool textures with this!

Happy Sunday! I want to share a new tool I’ve been using that creates the coolest texture! It’s a paint roller without the cover. I just picked it up and started rolling it and I love how it cuts through the semi-dry acrylic paint to create unusual textures and marks.

Check it out…

There’s something so great about a tool you can just roll across your surface. Using this has given me ideas about bigger tools I could use. What’s next? Maybe a turf aerator!

Have you ever used something like this? Let us know in the comments.

During this Wednesday’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast, I’ll be starting a painting for my daughter! Watch how the process starts and listen as I share my thoughts and tips on how to play, stay energized, and stay objective. I hope you’ll join me! If you want to watch this week’s episode, head to our YouTube Channel! You can also listen to and subscribe to your favorite podcast streaming service.

Have a great day in the studio!
