Watch the video or follow steps below:
Tip: If worried about messes, use a table cover before getting started.
Step 1 – First, squeeze out some paint on a plate. Think about the colors you want to use.
Step 2 – Next, take another plate and just imagine what you might paint.
Step 3 – Start dabbling with colors and create.
Tip: Use water and paper towels to clean brushes between colors. But sometimes mixing colors looks nice, too!
Step 4 – Keep adding colors until you feel your artwork is done.
Tip: If you don’t like how something is coming together, just use more paint to change your work.
Step 5 – Then add a “frame” for your art.
Step 6 – Continue to add more color if you like.
Step 7 – Finally, let dry.
Enjoy and repeat!
