I hope that you are finding a few minutes in your day to recharge your creative batteries. This painting really did it for me! Angels on High – Fluid Acrylic Cotton String New Dip & Drag Technique is a quick and easy painting with lovely results. It has fired up my creative heart and I have so many ideas for new art in the coming weeks. 🙂
This painting uses:
Sargent Art Gloss Medium and Varnish and acrylic paint- That’s it! I didn’t even add any water to the paints this time. 🙂 I like having a thicker paint for the string art. It seems to show up better on the wet canvas. 🙂 (You can use your favorite Medium-what ever you have!)
DecoArt Americana Primary Blue
DecoArt Metallics Glorious Gold
Artist Loft Flow Acrylic White
FolkArt Gloss Rose Shimmer
FolkArt Matte Bark Brown
Norpro 100% Cotton Twine (Kitchen String)
Brushes – Galaxy Set The Art Sherpa by Silver Brush Ltd
Craft Store Wood Tag (you can do this on any surface that you can paint!)
3 Parts Sargent Art Gloss Medium and Varnish and 1 Part Artist loft Flow White
All the other paint colors are mixed 1 part Paint and 4 parts Sargent Art Gloss Medium and Varnish. (Yes, you can use Liquitex Pouring Medium or Golden GAC-800 with the same ratios)
There’s no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of heating the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. I’m also concerned with the possible issues down the line with the paint not forming a good bond with the surface because of the oils preventing proper adhesion.
We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful, but there can be consequences we don’t know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. 🙂

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my creative projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.
