Modeling paste, texture paste, spackling compound, heavy gel medium--whatever you call it or whichever you use, it adds texture to your work like nobody's business!
There are many, many textural art products on the market today, often with additives and color mixed right in. Too, you can make your own unique mixtures by adding sawdust, fine gravel, and much more to a thick product. Fun!
|You can even form raised letters by pushing the paste through a stencil!|

When the paste has been freshly applied, scribble into it or press and stamp objects into it for added interest.
