Canvas transeferd into a blackboard :)

Hey, guys! It’s sunday and I had to try something new. I got this paint – it looks like normal black paint – but when it gets dry, you can pick up some chalk and write on it! So, I took a canvas & had a little fun with chalk paint and acrylics paint… ๐Ÿ˜Š Here is the result:

Oh, the last picture where it says: “Sonฤek, kupi kruh” it means something like: “Honey, can you buy some bread?” in Slovene… ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a nice evening, everyone!

DIY: How to pain the moon in acrylics (quoteart)

So, todays after work project was a gift for my dear friend. She loves blue color and the night sky, so I decided I will give my quoteart a touch of a fine night sky with a full moon. This is beginner painting so everyone can do it. Just follow those simple steps:

1. Pick your colors.ย IMG_20170316_162441

  1. ย Purple.
  2. Ocean blue (aqua)
  3. White.
  4. Black (lamp black)
  5. Blue (primary cyan)

 

2. Choose your canvas, brushes and a sponge.ย 

I chose big canvas – 60 x 80 cm. And here is a funny thing – I used ordinary kitchen sponge. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you have painting ones, use those instead, but the kitchen sponge can do the magic too. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Let’s get to work – background and the moon.

First, choose a circle where your moon it will be. I chose the right corner, because i need some space for long quote. Now get your sponge and draw some circles around the moon – you need to create 3D effect of a space. Than blend the colours together, so you can’t see the borders between them.

Now, take the white color mixed with water, put it on a bruch and shake it around the canvas so you get the illusion of stars. With swirling motion you can paint the moon too.

4. How to transfer any inscription you want from paper to canvas or wood.

Now, it’s time for you to find a quote on the internet and print it out. Or make your own design. ๐Ÿ™‚ You will need a piece of chalk for next step, too. First, use chalk to cover the BACK SIDE of the paper, turn it around and use a pencil to outline the letters. When you remove the paper, the chalk marks will remain or canvas or wood. Then, just use your brush to make the words perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

5… The end!

So, here is the final work. If you find this useful, please leave a comment. ๐Ÿ™‚
