Peeled Paint Magazine Rack

You will need

magazine Rack - I got mine at Ikea
Acrylic paint - 2 colours
Torn Papers
Kitchen Roll

I painted my Rack with Gesso and left to dry

I then coated it with watered down acrylic in yellow and let dry

I stuck on pieces of torn paper

I put vaseline over some of the paper and here and there on the paint

I then painted a coat of green acrylic all over - allow to dry

I wiped off all the vaseline with kitchen roll - a bit messy but I like the finished result

This is the spine

And this is one I have done using yellow and brown acrylic and leaving out the torn paper stage.

They are both ready now to add embellishments of your choice
