I have a piece of MDF that I applied a texture to with Venetian plaster. What I am trying to do is have some of the raised bits of texture be one color and have the overall background be another. Almost as if the color is pushing through, you know?
I tried painting the main BG color first and kind of lightly "highlighting" the peaks with the other color but that did not give the nice effect I was looking for.
I also tried painting the peak color and then painting the BG color on top of it and then kind of sponging or dry-brushing the BG color off of the peaks. Kind of having mixed results with this one. :/
I'm kind of looking for a similar effect as seen here:
But the method mentioned was not really working for me either. I've been trying to do some research on other methods but my search results are not as plentiful as I had hoped.
