I wanted to complete two canvases I had used the paint pour technique on, I chose the blue one for the video, that reminded me of a galaxy background.
To start off I used Shawn’s face stencil with a sponge and some paint just to place where I wanted her to be. Then I used the butterfly masks to trace onto different papers and sprayed through the butterfly stencil onto plain paper.
After cutting out all the butterflies I placed the butterfly masks around the canvas covered the face and sprayed the background. When that was dry I painted highlights and details on her face using silver paint. Afterward I splashed silver paint and spray inks onto the background.
I finished off the canvas by sticking down all the butterflies, redoing the stenciling with texture paste and a palette knife, adding highlights with my uniball signo pen and once the canvas was fully dry I covered the butterflies with two layers of gel medium to add some shine.
I had loads of fun creating on that canvas and I love how it turned out.
I hope you enjoy the video and find inspiration from it. I can’t wait to share what I create with you all soon.
