Playing with Paints – Part 1

I created these papers on Fabiano hot press 90 lb paper that comes in a tablet.  It is one of my favorite papers to use in my artwork.  It is not really meant for acrylic paint but I make it work to use in other art projects.

It was really fun to splash the paint around!  I used both Golden fluid acrylics and Liquitex heavy body acrylics with a little water. I used my finger for the red dots above.

I used a stencil on these two papers:

And for the one below, I used a chopstick to make the black marks and a sewing pattern wheel to make the tiny dots!

And for this one, I scratched into the wet paint with the end of my paint brush to reveal the colors underneath:

I also used a paper towel in the top left corner and a wax candy wrapper to make the black marks in the upper right.

I hope you will join me tomorrow to see how I use them in a collage!

Happy Creating!  🙂
