Materials I used was Acrylic paint, Gesso, and water. This isn't what other people were using in the videos, but it's what I had on hand. I think the other videos required a blow torch and silicone; who knows what else! Who has that on hand!? Kudos if you do :) These materials every artist should have, if not it's very easy to purchase from Walmart.
I picked 3 colors I wanted, and white. Each color I placed in it's own jar/container/cup. I added some water to the acrylic paint and Gesso to make it more runny, that way it's easier to move on the canvas. Mix VERY well. I can't stress that enough; my first try had some paint that wasn't mixed. Unless if you were to buy big containers of premixed acrylic paint (off-brand cheap stuff), then you don't need to worry about this, but you can still add water to save paint (paint+gesso = $).
Ok, so after mixing all the paint in your cups, it's time to combine them all 1 by 1. Pour each color into the gesso cup. Once done, move all your empty cups out of the way cause you'll need some space for this.
Take your canvas and place your hand underneath in the middle for support. In the other hand, hold your cup of paint. Then take your canvas and flip it upside down onto the cup, in the middle. Flip it back over onto the table. Now it's time to lift the cup up and let all the paint flow. *eeeek* It's best to quickly take the cup away fast instead of letting it drip on the already mixed paint; it wouldn't look well with drips.
Once you lift your cup up, grab your canvas and start moving it around to spread the paint all over. Paint will spill off the side, but to minimize that just make sure to estimate how much paint you'll need before hand. I like to have a little split, so afterwards I can use it to paint the sides & mistakes if necessary.
If you place the canvas on top of the extra paint that spilled and leave it there for several days, the paint will still be wet and ready to use to fix any mistakes!
If you're more of a visual learner like I am, then just click on the video link at the top of this article that I made! You could always ditch the gesso and use white paint instead for a more popping color. This gives off a pastel color to it. And don't forget to spray your painting with a nice gloss finish.
