Painting with a Credit Card
Many times it’s what is behind your image that catches the eye. I love using a variety of techniques to create unique backgrounds.
The credit card technique is simple and fun. You end up with a truly unique look every time. The best part is it’s so easy to do!
Beautiful Backgrounds -- Credit card painting technique
Old credit card/gift card
Paint 2+ colours
surface to paint
Start by placing your paint colours on the wax paper. Create small puddles close but not touching the other colours.
Take your credit card & dip it into all the colours at once.
Gently drag your painted dipped card across your project surface. You will notice that as you go the paint puddles will begin to blend a bit this can add to the unique drag lines created.
Play and drag you will perfect your own technique! The best part is the paint goes on thin so your background dries fairly quickly. You can always add more of one colour or new colours if you want to change up the look.
Go be creative & share your results with us when you are done!
