DIY abstract artwork

Here is what you will need to accomplish this type of artwork:

  • A 36 x 36” Canvas
  • Black Paint (I used Mars Black)
  • 2” paint brush
  • Gel Medium (Gloss Super Heavy Gel)
  •  Pouty knife

I started by painting the canvas all black and let it dry completely. From there I (with the help of my husband) measured out 2 inches from the side of the canvas and put a dot every 4 inches across and 7 inches up and down.

I measured out about a cup of gel medium, I added in 3 big squeezes of the black paint and mixed together in a separate container. Taking the pouty knife, I put the gel mixture on the canvas and scraped down. Don’t worry if it isn’t perfect, that truly is the beauty of it being so abstract.
