DIY Pop Art Painting- Acrylic Pop Art Tutorial

Media: Acrylic
Skill Level:  Beginner
Level of Difficulty:  2 (out of 5)

Project Steps (see video at end of steps)

Step 1 – To begin make a design on your DaVinci Ultra Smooth Panel with artist tape. Where ever you place the tape it will remain white, this technique is called masking. I am taping a diamond shape but you can make any design you like. Make sure to press the tape down well .

Tip: Use a craft knife to clean up and ragged tape edges.

Step 2 – Mix 4 parts Soho Gloss Gel with 1 part Soho Acrylic Paint to make a transparent paint. Note: We use Gloss Gel to thin the paint instead of water so it will dry slowly and bond to the panel.

You can use any of the colors in the set to make yours!

Step 3 – Crumple up a plastic shopping bag and dip it in the glaze and using a pouncing and swirling motion apply it on the panel over the tape.

Step 4  – Use a Creative Inspirations Dura Handle brush to add lines, spatters and a border to your painting. Tip: You can add a bit of water to the paint to make spattering easier, never add more than 30% water to acrylic paint or it will weaken the bond of the paint to canvas.

Step 5 – Remove the tape to reveal your masterpiece! You can clean up any smudges on the white areas with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol if needed. NOTE: Remove the tape while the paint is still damp to ensure it doesn’t get stuck under the drying gel medium (it would make the paint and such potentially peel off when removing the tape)
