I used a basic 6 X 6 square canvas for this, but you could easily use the Woodware Canvas Paper and either wrap a frame with it, or frame it when finished, or not...up to you.
The background was swiped with various bright color inks, sprinkled with rock salt, and spritzed with water. The colors move a bit, and the rock salt causes a bit of splotchiness and texture. When dry, I used thinned down Dreamweaver Glossy White Paste to give a washed look to the Dreamweaver Large Scales design on the side. I used the same Glossy White Paste to paste-emboss the new Dreamweaver Sailboat, adding a few extra choppy waves with paste on the edge of my palette knife. Once again, this was set aside to dry.
