Drawing on Krylon Natural Stone Spray

January 31, 2015

Continuing to play around with different textured drawing surfaces, I recently tried out a can of Krylon’s “Natural Stone” spray paint. It comes in different shades and colors. The one I picked was a beige “limestone.”

I applied a couple coats to a scrap piece of cardboard. It’s not an extremely rough surface, but has some good tooth. I’d guess it’s close to a 150 grit sandpaper. I thought it worked very well, especially with soft pastels and ink markers. Some of my harder pencils didn’t leave much of a mark, but I think that was mostly due to the soft cardboard.

Being a spray, it offers some interesting features, such as masking off areas, and applying it to different surfaces like glass or plastic. It doesn’t make any “archival” claims, but does say that it’s UV resistant, so use at your own risk.
