Dustpan Painting

Just Jen - "Feeling Fierce "

Ingredients

  • 1 sturdy waterproof dropcloth
  • 18” x 24” gesso primed canvas
  • High flow acrylic paints in at least 5 colors of your choice
  • 1 clean 8” dustpan

Steps

  1. Cover the work surface with a sturdy waterproof drop cloth.
  2. Tint the gesso if desired. Paint the canvas with gesso and allow to dry completely.
  3. Make sure your surface is level and place the canvas on the dropcloth.
  4. Choose desired colors and pour them into the dustpan in layers and stripes; the more color variation that is created in the pan the more interest the final product will yield.
  5. Slowly pour the dustpan out onto the canvas, moving slowly and shaking it back and forth to create patterns on the canvas.
  6. Leave the canvas on the work surface for 24 hours, or until paint has completely dried.
  7. Once dried, hang the canvas or gift to a friend!
