VIDEO: Making Acrylic Paint Backgrounds – Collaboration With My Arty Heart


Surprise video time and some acrylic paint backgrounds! Well, not so much of a surprise seeing as I actually mentioned it in yesterday’s video! But a sort of surprise and the first part of an art video collaboration with Jeanine from the YouTube channel My Arty Heart. Watch the video for the details of the collaboration as I show you what I made to send to Jeanine to work on. Then pop on over to My Arty Heart to see what Jeanine made for me!

I’ve put some close-ups of the acrylic paint backgrounds at the bottom of these post so that you can see some more of the textures.
