Hello dear reader,
You must be thinking what this painting is doing in health blog?
Well.. I like to indulge in my hobbies, that is painting and crafting during free time. its really relaxing.
This one is my palette knife painting also know as impasto painting. I used acrylic gold as background and Persian blue, violet to make flowers, butterflies and my favorite hummingbird. It is made on 24”x18” stretched canvas.
I bought this small clay pot few days back..thought to do something creative with it.
basic terra-cotta pot/clay pot, flat brush, size zero brush, acrylic sealer, acrylic gold, acrylic white, and acrylic magenta.
first clean your pot with water.
I use magenta and gold acrylic as base. And give vertical strokes with size 12 brush.
Here it is, after double coat of colours
Though it’s looking beautiful as it is..artbug in me didn’t listen..it wanted to paint some more. So I decided to draw dragonfly on it.
I use size 0 paint brush to draw white dotes descending downwords.
And acrylic gold to make its tiny wings.
And here is the final result.
Apply acrylic gloss sealer from within and also outer part to make it waterproof. Beautiful and colorful pot is ready. You can plant any small plant, 🌿 herb, succulents or lucky bamboo. Decorate your own space or use it as handmade beautiful gift.
