For this piece, I used Liquitex Acrylic Paint on a 12 x 12 canvas for the background. Then I put a stencil on the canvas once the paint was dry, and used Gold Liquitex spray paint. After that dried, I used a tiny paintbrush and red Liquitex Ink to “color in” the Mandala. I had so much fun making it that I think I will do a series in several different color schemes.
Liquitex is my favorite brand when it comes to acrylic painting. I especially love their heavy body line of paint and their modeling paste and heavy gel. I painted an underlayer of pink and let it dry over night. Then I spread modeling paste across the entire 20 x 20 canvas and “carved” in it using a fork. After it fully dried a couple of days later, then I painted on top of the modeling paste. I had so much fun creating this piece! #painting #liquitex #heavy gloss gel #pallate knives #acrylicpainting #abstracts#abstract art #layers #textureart #canvas #artwork #artdirection#artlovers #fineart I have a few more paintings in process using the same technique.

“Fork It” is an abstract acrylic on 20 x 20 canvas. I used Liquitex paint, heavy gel, and varnish. I had a blast creating this I laid a thick layer of red paint mixed with Liquitex heave gel and used a small kitchen fork to create the “trails” after it dried for a couple days it was ready to add different colors over the red to create contrast and visual complexity. I sold this one for $450 at an art show and still miss it.
