1. Apply a thin coat of black acrylic paint to the baseboard using a foam brush. Irregular brush strokes are preferred as they create the appearance of movement.
2. For the second coat of paint, use a scrunched up paper towel to apply black, blue, & lilac using a dabbing motion. Work with small quantities of paint in small sections to blend.
3. Next, use red & blue paint to mix a dark purple and apply it sparingly using a sponge.
4. To create lighter areas with a cloud like appearance, apply pin points of white paint using a toothpick and gently blend with a slightly damp sponge.
5. Use a sponge brush to lightly apply metallic paint to select areas of the water droplet stamp. Stamp the design and repeat the process in three separate areas of the space scene.
6. Next, apply metallic paint to the hexagon background stamp to add random texture.
8. Use various size bubble stamps to create planets in the scene with metallic paint.
9. Next, use silver paint to randomly stamp clusters of stars.
10. Finally, create the splattering of stars by diluting some white acrylic paint with 50% water. Dip the handle of a thin paint brush into the diluted paint, hold it vertically over the canvas, and tap it with the other hand. Lastly, use an old toothbrush to add a fine mist of specks of paint to create the galaxy of stars. Dip the toothbrush into the paint, remove excess paint. Then angle the toothbrush towards the canvas. Use your thumb to gently bend the bristles and then release the bristles starting at one end of the brush going along the whole head of the toothbrush to flick the paint.
TIPS: Creating splashes varies greatly and requires a bit of practice if you are very particular about the size of splatter you want to create. Always practice before attempted a new technique on your final project. The thicker the paint is the more difficult it is to splatter. The first tap of a loaded brush will flick the largest splatters so try to keep
minimal paint on the handle of the brush. The angel of the brush is also an important variable when flicking paint. Try to keep your hands moving constantly to avoid creating any predictable patterns when splattering. To avoid disappoint, always cover your work surface completely, as well as, your clothes to protect them from stray splatters. Alternatively, work outside on the lawn as a matter of convenience and ease of clean up.
