Get a jump start

This is a fun way to get a great background-Fast! It will work on paper, canvas or panel.

Begin with 2-3 paint colors plus white. Place drops around the
 surface and spray with water.

Place a piece of paper on top and begin to lightly 
drag, twist and turn the paper. The top sheet is being 
used as a brush to move your paint around.

Here I am using a deli sheet so you can see the paint 
below. Keep moving the paper around.

While the paint is still wet, drop some rubbing alcohol 
onto the surface to create pattern.

Blot any areas that have too much paint, let dry and 
you are ready to jump into your project.

Plus you have the bonus paper that was used as 
your brush. Gotta love it.
