Fluid Acrylic Poured Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Drink with Negative S...

Come with me to a magical place where sparkling Unicorns drink sweet and sour, color changing frosty concoctions!



This fluid acrylic poured painting has all the spirit but non of the calories or stickiness!


Today I'm painting on an 11x14 pre gessoed canvas panel
Using:
Liquitex Heavy Body: Ultra Marine, Dioxazine Purple, Titanium White Golden Glazing Liquid Gloss
Liquitex Pouring Medium
Golden Fluid Acrylics : Phthalo Blue, Phthalo Green (transparent), Quinacridone Magenta

Brushes: Simply Simmons Firm Filament #12 Filbert(1 inch), Royal and Langnickle Angle 3/8 inch.

Contact Brand clear sticky back plastic for the mask.

And a pair of scissors.
There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of burning the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. 

We all have to weigh the pros and cons of  how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful but there can be consequences we don't know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. :)

Fluid Acrylic Poured Painting Behr Interior House Paint Alternative Pour...

This experiment takes us back to outer space using negative space!

I painted the MDF 12x12 board with a flat black paint and sprinkled stars.
Then using a salad plate I cut a circle mask in a piece of Contact sticky backed film and put it on the front of the board AFTER THE BACKGROUND PAINT WAS DRY.

Then pouring in stripes with the 1 cup Dirty Pour of  Behr paint and Golden Polymer medium in a 1:1 ratio the planet was put in and left to dry for a while (I used a blow dryer from a high up angle so I didn't disturb the paint but I did get it to set up a bit. 

Then I Pulled off the Mask to reveal the planet! 

Next using plain Golden Polymer Medium I back filled the negative space on the board around the planet.

Finally using Micro Pearl Pearl Ex mixed into Golden Polymer Medium I created the Comet!

The Behr Colors I used were: Raven Raisin, Cherry Red, Majestic Blue, Luscious Lemon and Nano White.

As an alternative to Liquitex Pouring Medium this time I used Golden Polymer Medium Gloss.- it is about the same price as the Liquitex BUT the Golden Polymer Medium is IN Stock! 
Jaquard Pearl Ex Powder- Micro Pearl

This worked out really well! I has to wait for the painting to be completely dried so I could finish the video with it. But Oh My goodness it was worth the wait!

I have a creative spirit that loves to explore and experiment with all kinds of Arts and Craft!

Fluid Acrylic Poured Painting - Abstract Fantasy Planet - Using a Mask E...

Masking and pouring paint works!! I'm so excited by the possibilities this opens up.

 Being able to put a targeted pour in a specific spot on a painting just by masking with contact paper (sticky backed plastic used Usually as a re-positional shelf liner-It has just enough tack to stay put and keep a clean seal but it is easy to release from the painting surface. Contact is the brand I used that is available in the United states)


This painting looks like a fantasy planet in a star filled sky. I painted the background in with Liquitex Heavy Body: Mars Black, Phthalo Blue and Dioxazine Purple and dried it over night. Then I used a toothbrush to spatter thinned down Liquitex Titanium White for the star filled sky. After that was dry I applied the precut mask of Contact sticky backed plastic as the mask and did the pour!

All of the paints were all watered down to a smooth fluid - like thin cream and then mixed with Golden Polymer Medium Gloss, the Golden GAC-800.   

This time we are using a 12 inch x 12 inch Cradled Wood Panel.  I'm  using several different paints to pour with: Decoart Crafter's acrylics:  Buttercream,  Liquitex Titanium White, Matisse: Southern Ocean Blue, Pebeo Studio Acrylics: Red/Blue, Golden Polymer Medium Gloss, Golden GAC-800 and water.

There's no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of burning the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. We all have to weigh the pros and cons of  how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful but there can be consequences we don't know about yet.

How to draw Snowflake Obsidian Doodlegem Tutorial ep 43

Here we go! Snowflake Obsidian Doodlegem is the stone of the day!

This stone was a request by a lovely community member on my previous video for the January Garnet Birthstone.



I LOVE our community of creative people we have here on Youtube, and especially the folks that come and hang out with me in the comments after watching my videos. :) This viewer had said that she loves snowflake obsidian and would like to learn how to draw it up. I fell in love with this stone. It is really easy to do and gives you a lot of bang for your time. It comes together quickly with very few pencils needed.


Here's the list of materials I used:
Neenah 110lb cardstock Solar White - You can use any paper that you have available!

White Gel Ink Pen-- I used the Uniball Signo UM-153
Black Fine Line Pen- I used the Pigma Micron Black 02

Prismacolor Colored Pencils:
Black, White, 10% Cool Grey, 70% Warm Grey, Cloud Blue, Indigo Blue and a Colorless Blender.

If doing this is any other pencils You will still really want to have a Prismacolor White and Colorless Blender. And then you just need to add Black, light Grey, Medium Grey, Pale Blue, and Dark Blue.

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my doodle gems projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.

How to Draw and Color a Juicy Citrus: Lime

It's time for the January #Coloroftheyear Art Crawl!


This video brings you a Juicy drawing of a lime slice and wedge ready to adorn a Summertime greeting card or barbeque Invitation. You could also put in a simple frame as a lovely piece of Kitchen art!  


I show you how to do this lovely project every step of the way in realtime. We will use lovely colors of greens and yellows to create this juicy fruit!

Materials Used in this show:
I share the tools and materials that I Used. You can certainly use any kind of colored pencils- you want a Yellow Green, Medium Green, Olive/Moss Green, Bright Green and possibly a White to use as a blender 
Prismacolor Color Pencils:
Colorless Blender, Kelly Green, Chartreuse, Yellow Chartreuse, Apple Green and Moss green

Graphite pencil (I used a Stadler Techno Mechanical Pencil)

The Reference Photo was found on Http://pixabay.com 

Link to the Playlist: https://goo.gl/eOlrVC

This year the color is Greenery. Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. It is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that make you think of the first days of spring when nature’s greens return after a long colorless winter. Greenery signals people to take a deep breath. Greenery is an omnipresent hue around the world.
A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

How to Paint a Late Autumn Steam Train Real Time Acrylic Painting tutorial

Come along with me on a Late Autumn Steam Train painting adventure! 

This is a painting that could be set any where in time. I will show you step by step what to do. This is such a relaxing painting that explores steam, smoke, clouds, simple impressionistic plants and trees too. I hope you have as much fun as I did. (Traceable sketch on My Pinterest: http://bit.ly/2hWDOHa


Everytime I pick up a paintbrush it will be a creative journey.I love exploring the world through the use of art. A couple things you should know: I am not a trained, professional painter. I have been doing some form of art or craft all my life and can't image going a day without doing something creative. :) I am currently loving the way painting relaxes me even when I sit down to a long painting session. I come away with a peaceful heart. My hope is that you will see that You can do this too! Acrylic painting is very forgiving. If something doesn't go right, let it dry and paint right over it. YOu can change your mind, take the painting in a different direction. It is all up to you and your creative spirit!

Materials I used in this painting:
11"x14" stretched pre-gessoed canvas
Acrylic paints Liquitex and Golden are great Heavy body paints- these are the colors used in this painting:
Burnt Umber
Burnt Sienna
Phthalo Blue (green shade)
Cadmium Red Medium or Pyrrole Red
Cadmium Yellow or Hansa Yellow
Yellow Oxide or Yellow Ochre
Ultramarine Blue
Titanium White
Mixing White or Zinc White

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves. 

I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.
