Part 2 - 90's Paint Splatter Easel.y!

Updated: May 4


Ignore the banner, this is indeed part 2!


Oh, the joys of diving into something new. Sure, there might be a few bumps along the way, but hey, imperfection is where the real magic happens, right?


Now, onto the good stuff—


the second half of this easel painting project, aka the 90's splatter effect. Trust me, it's the cherry on top! And guess what? It's easier than you might think.


Here's the lowdown: armed with my trusty #6 round brush and a mix of paint and a splash of water (to get that perfect splatter effect), I went to town. I tapped the brush against my palette knife, doing my best to control the direction of the flying paint. Spoiler alert: it's seriously satisfying to watch those colorful droplets hit the easel!


For this masterpiece, I decided to keep things pastel.


I reached for my Golden brand light magenta, a delightful concoction of Liquitex soft-body cadmium yellow and titanium white for a light yellow, and a craft-brand turquoise that was already rocking a lovely pastel tint.


Now, here's the trick—I focused my splatters mostly to the right of the easel, leaving some blank space to let those colors shine without overwhelming my "canvas".


I skipped the varnish this time around, opting for a soft, matte look. But if you're feeling fancy, a brush-on or spray-on varnish in matte would be the perfect finishing touch.


So there you have it, folks—part 2 of my Splatter-Look easel painting escapades. Imperfect, colorful, and oh-so-satisfying. Until next time, keep flinging paint, keep creating, and above all, embrace those beautiful imperfections! 🎨✨
