Artists, what material would work for this?

Recommended Posts

I saw a triptych at Pier 1 that I would love to have, but it's too large for the area I have in mind. It looks like something that wouldn't be hard to make, if you had the right materials. For some reason, it's not on the Pier 1 website, but it was similar to this:



The background was a wood panel, and the branches were made of some kind of whitish putty/glue/goop material.


Any suggestions for what you could use to re-create this? Thanks.

Please don't use glue! If you want to go to the trouble to create such a nice, detailed piece, use quality art materials that will last.


First, start with the right surface. I would use something like this, and obviously you'd need three.


Then, I'd build the raised surface with modeling paste.


Finally, I'd paint it with acrylic paint.


Have fun!
