Easy Beach Art 🌊

beach May 10, 2023

I am showing you how to make a simple beach-themed art piece with all of the glass goodies and shells! We'll start by painting our ocean background and then we'll add our embellishments and resin. Creating beach art is one of my favorite things to do, and this one is great for beginners just starting out with glass art!

We are splitting our canvas into three different areas - sky, ocean, and sand. We are going to paint the bottom of our canvas with Vintage White and white to make our sand. Then, I'll use Sky Blue for my sky along with some white paint to create some soft clouds. Then, I'll paint my ocean with Prussian Blue, Tropical Blue, and white. I'll use my darker blue towards the horizon and gradually blend in the Tropical Blue and then the white as I get closer to the shoreline. Dry with a heat tool.

Next, I'll paint some birds in my sky with a smaller brush and some white paint. It's as easy as painting some Vs in the sky! Let dry, then grab your graphic pen and add some detail lines to your birds.

Next, we'll add some glass to the sand area of our canvas! I'm using clear glass, Starfire glass, shells, and glass chips. Use whatever you would like here!

 Next, we will add resin. We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Then, drizzle over your glass and shells. Pour the remainder of the resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!

Finally, I'll sprinkle some colored and clear seed bubbles as well as glass bubbles onto my canvas too.
