A little while ago in one of my favourite shops (The Works) I found some cheap wooden rolling pins aimed at children and I guess with Playdoh or plasticine in mind.
They had interesting patterns in the wood and so, because they were so cheap, I delved into my purse and bought them. A couple of days ago I had the opportunity to have a play with them.
They are great for back ground texture. I was using ordinary acrylic paint and at some point I will also try some stitch and a bit of ‘burn’ with the hot air gun. But for now here is are the results.
