Hi everyone. I'm experimenting with painting and other mediums. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to create the spiral effect in the attached picture.

Hey Krystal I had some really good luck using drywall compound cheaper than using the modeling paste. Once spread out on the canvas thinly use a stiff brush in a circular motion to create the effect you desire and let dry. Paint over with Gesso and there you have the spiral effect. Hope that helps. :) Cat.

Hi Krystal

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see any image attached.
