Modelling paste – Zellen
Modelling paste is the perfect medium for modelling, building surfaces and creating texture. It is a smooth white paste that dries into a flexible opaque relief texture with no shrinking or cracking. Acrylic paint can be added to ‘tint’ the paste for a different effect, but as the paste is white, it will lighten the colour that has been added.
A variety of tools can be used to mould, sculpt or create texture. For example: A plastic palette knife is the go-to tool when using modelling paste and a stencil. Paint scrapers can be used to create interesting patterns on the paste.
Can be used on canvas or a 300gsm paper which can take the weight of the modelling paste. The surface must be grease free and semi-porous
