Flax oil painting

oddieAugust 21, 2007

I have a picture I found at a yard sale, went to hang it and droped it and broke the glass, I read somewhere where you can paint over the picture with maybe it was decopodge or mod podge and get a oil painting look.

I have looked for hours but can not find any info on this, I dont want to mess up the picture trying , does anyone have any ideas on how to do this or any other ideas that might work.

Sorry didnt notice that I had spelled faux worng, Had done this search but found nothing on the idea of useing decopodge to make a poster look like a oil painting, I am pretty sure that decopodge was what was used, in the end the poster has lines kinda like a oil painting does, and it seals the poster so as not to have to use glass, was hopeing someone had read about or done this, thanks for your quick responce!

Sorry, Oddie, I've seen it done, but don't know how to do it myself. The artful crafter site looks like a good one. Good luck. :) ~Anj
