What you need:

  • Artitude Artist Board
  • Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic
  • Liquitex Glossies in Black
  • Liquitex Paint brushes
  • Pencil

What you do:

  1. Take a size of your choice on the Artitude Artist Boards and lay on a flat surface.
  2. Take a selection of Liquitex Heavy Body Paint for this design
  3. Using a pencil roughly sketch out your design directly onto the Artitude Artist Board. You could draw out on paper first if you prefer to ensure you are happy with the positioning.
  4. Next fill in blocks of colour starting the lightest colour first. As the Artist boards are untreated they absorb the colour and dry quite quickly. Continue building all the colours from the design. Leave to dry.
  5. Lastly use the Liquitex Glossies in black dribbled and loosely drawn directly from the bottle to create the outline. Once dry this will create a glossy finish in contrast to the matt acrylic paint.
