4 Easy Peasy Ways To Have Fun With Acrylic Paint

Jump into the world of painting with our Art Jamming sessions; they are great as a team-building session or as a friend’s day out activity. But after your experience with The Fun Empire, do you have any ideas on how to produce more stunning pieces of artwork? Fret not, we will give you 4 ideas to what you can try out next!

Shaving Cream Magic

Let’s get this started. All you need is to get a waterproof surface (you are going to dump this) and cover the whole of it in shaving cream. Yes, shaving cream, plenty of it. Then scatter around different colours of acrylic paint above the layer of whip cream. Once done, use a chopstick and mix the paint together, then press a canvas board down on the whole layer of whip cream. Next, remove the canvas board and using this canvas board, remove all the whip cream and paint using a spatula or anything really. Once the chunk of cream is removed, your job is done and your artwork is a real piece of art as unbelievable as it is.

Cling Wrap Unveiling

The next one is going to be as easy as the first one. Put five different colours of acrylic paint down on a canvas sheet, or any other number actually. You should attempt to drip the paint down in an artistic manner (whatever that means :)); it is important that you put different colours of paint closely to one another and leave the spaces closer to the edges untouched. By the end of this process, the paint should take up about half the surface area of the white canvas board. Once that is done, cover the whole canvas in cling wrap, yes, cling wrap. Proceed afterwards to use your hands and press above the cling wrap to spread the paint to the borders of the canvas, covering any white portions. When you are done, simply remove the cling wrap and voila, time to show off on Instagram.

Cardstock Swipes

It only gets easier right? Now we are going to pour acrylic paint in 1 column about a CM wide, but in many layers of different colour (try to make a pattern – Dark red, red, pink, red, dark red). It is something like pouring paint like a 15CM ruler shape, but every 2 CM mark it will be a different colour. And just grab a cardstock, and slowly wipe the paint from one edge of the canvas to the other. Do this task repetitively on around the same spot you started on. The end product will really sweep you off your feet.

Drippy melts

Well for this last one, there is literally no room for error. Pour dots of acrylic paint on the canvas in a random fashion. For this, it would be optimum to use three colours to best see the gradient effects. Then cut a piece of cardstock, roughly 1cm wide, and use it to wipe the paint down, 1 CM by 1 CM, Working from left to right, top to down, covering every white space on the canvas. Once you swipe all the paint onto every single portion of the canvas, you know you are done.
