Acrylic Paint Smearing Tutorial
This tutorial utilizes something most of us just throw away.....a gift card or hotel key card. It creates a background with several layers in just few steps.
Substrate - I used a shipping tag.
Plastic Gift Card
Spray Bottle of Water
1. Place acrylic paint on the substrate. For a softer look, spray with water.
2. Using the gift cart, spread across the tag. Be careful not to over mix it. If the lines are too hard spray with water.
