Introduction: Abstract Painting With String! (No Artistic Skill Required!)
There are thousands of crafts you can make with string, but have you ever thought of painting with it? Yeah, it sounds a bit weird at first, but the result looks so amazing, people will never know it was painted with string! It's so simple yet satisfying to do!
- String, almost as long as your canvas (or paper)
- Acrylic paint
- A pair of gloves
- A canvas or painting paper
- A piece of cardboard or plastic to cover your workspace
Step 1: Prepping the Canvas!
First, cover the whole canvas with titanium white. Don't let it dry!
Step 2: Time to Get Messy!
Put on your gloves and squirt some paint into a bowl or a dish with an edge. Take your string and mix it in the paint, except for the part you're holding.
Step 3: Create Your Design!
Lay your string on the canvas/paper in a zig-zag pattern. Then, carefully pull the string slowly towards yourself.
Step 4: Repeat!
Now repeat the steps again as many times as you want, with as many colors as you want! Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this Instructable! Wish me luck in the contest!
