Any idea if this could be done on walls?

Thanks for the ible!

I tried this on my PS3 controller, I did it with CREATEX Pearlized Candy Blue with the CREATEX Opaque White over top as the water.

It did not turn out well. I think it may have been the combination of the colors. It also had a lot to do with the curved surface of the controller.

I bought some enamal paints but im not sure it is the right kind, it says it is water based so wouldent it just blend into the water?

I'm looking for a cool idea for kids room. Can this be done on a wall??
Thanx for posting!

does anyone know how to do this effect but on water drops that are actually dripping down....kinda like long drops, i think that'd be cool.

I haven't tried this yet, but I imagine if you took a canvas like that, and just sprayed water along one of the top edges, then tilted it you could let the drops drip down naturally, then go on to the next step with the spray paint. Not sure if it will work but hey, you don't like it, paint over it and do it again! Oh, and please tell us how it comes out!

if that idea does not work then it may be more time consuming but still possible. have the surface you are painting be [almost] perfectly flat leaning in the direction you are wanting to have it drip. spray water onto the surface as you normally would and then use an eye dropper to add water to the surface and use a toothpick to move the water around to where you want it to be.

i havent tried it yet, but its an idea worth trying.

best of luck

 I used red paint on the water droplets so it kinda looks like "blood" drops. Great fun!

thanks!

here's the paint job. I wanted the face plate to actually have texture.
