1. Using a Q-tip and acrylic paint, paint open circles and curved lines similar to the let C on a vintage paper. Let dry or use a heat tool to dry before moving on to the next color. I work on several pieces at once so the first color is dry by the time I am ready to move onto the next one so I do not usually use a heat gun.
I would never use the paint to actually paint with because it is so transparent but for this technique it was great. It also came in this little tubs of paint so it was perfect to traveling to an art making event.
